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 .
Create a Group using new button
Also here is a little trick that will allow you to mange your template community with a little more native Salesforce funtionality.
In the Manager under Administration>Tabs add any areas that you offer in the template. (e.g. Chatter, Groups Knowledge, cases, etc.)
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.
