Creating a community
Click the " + Create Community" button to get started.
Fill out the pop-up form to create a new community.
Community Icon: Square images in file format jpeg or png work best.
Community Name: The community name should convey who the community is for and make it easy for members to know which community to join, such as department name, state or country, or a specific topic.
Visibility: Choose how you want the community to be discovered.
Public: The community will appear under the “Suggested Communities” view. Members can search for the community, and all members can join the community.
Limited: The community can only be found when members search for it or if members have a link to join the community. It will not appear under the “Suggested Communities” view.
Hidden: The community can only be found with a direct link. Therefore, it is not searchable and is hidden from the “Suggested Communities” view.
Create a Password: You can add another layer of exclusivity by requiring interested members to enter a password to join the community.
If you add a password, make sure to record it so you can share it when inviting people to join. Once the password is set, you will not be able to view it.
Community Headline: Add a short description of the community that inspires action.
Invite Additional Community Admins: Add the email addresses of those who co-manage the community. As the creator of the community, you're automatically designated as an admin of the community.
Click "Create Community" when you're done.
