Groups give community users the opportunity to network and collaborate based on a common interest, location, profession, etc. Users and admins alike can create groups. Groups can be public and available to all or private to a defined, invited group of members. Read below to learn how to find a group, join a group, create a group, and engage with your group. 

 

Find a Group

Click "Join" to join a group. Click "My Groups" to browse all the groups you are a member of.  If you are a member of 3 or more groups, your view will automatically default to 'My Groups', otherwise it will default to 'Other Groups'.
