I'm in the Napili template. When I try to add a page for Groups, I get an error message telling me that I have to have a group to access this component. But I don't see any place at all to create the first group.

Any thoughts? Thanks Trish Perkins


You can try creating a Group Navigation Menu and Hopefully that will allow you to create Groups and avoid the alert .

Also here is a little trick that will allow you to mange your template community with a little more native Salesforce funtionality.

  1. In the Manager under Administration>Tabs add any areas that you offer in the template. (e.g. Chatter, Groups Knowledge, cases, etc.)

  2. Go to your community url and replace the /s/ with this /_ui/core/chatter/groups/GroupListPage

This will get you to the tabbed view of the community. FYI, you'll probably need the "View Global Header" permission if you dont have that enabled already.

    My partner found the problem. It was a permissions issue. Thanks Mohith! – Trish Perkins Apr 23 '16 at 17:08
