As a group admin, you can add an information page to your own group. This page will be added as a tab within the group, just like 'Timeline', 'About this group', and 'Group members'.
Use a group information page for example to post house rules or background information. This way, important information can be found at a glance by all group members.
Adding a page to your group
If you want to add a page to your group take the following steps:
1. Move your mouse over Groups in the navigation bar.
2. Then click on the group to which you want to add a page.
The group page for that group appears.
3. Click on pages in the group's menu bar. Don't see a tab with pages? Then check if the pages are set for the group. You can read how to set up functionalities for a group here.
4. Then click + New group page, on the left side of the screen.
Writing an information page
Now a screen appears where you can create an information page for your group.
We will take you step by step through the fields to be filled in:
1. Type a name for your page.
This will later be displayed as a tab within the group, so keep the name short.
2. Add a brief summary if applicable.
3. Next, type the content of your page.
You can format the content using the toolbar in the text field.
4. Add forms if desired.
5. Add documents if desired.
6. You can also choose to add links, for example to external sites or internal pages of the platform.
7. Determine who owns the page. Note, choose someone who has knowledge of the content of the page. People can later approach the owner of the page for questions or comments.
8. Determine whether the page is a parent page or subpage. A subpage falls under a parent page. To create a subpage, a parent page must already exist.
9. Determine the location. This is automatically filled in for group pages. You do not have to make any changes.
10. Choose whether to display the page as a separate tab in the group. If you do not select this, the page will appear under the tab pages. If you do select this option, the page and its title will appear in the menu bar of the group. Use this feature for important pages that need to be accessed frequently, so users can find them quickly.
11. Set the publish date. If you choose a date in the future, the page will not be published until that date.
12. Determine the archiving date. If you want to archive a page, you can do that automatically by setting an archiving date. On this date, the page disappears into the archive. It is then no longer visible in the group, but it can be searched via the Plek search. You can always re-publish an archived page later on.
13. Select whether you want to use content review. A notification is then sent to the owner of the page. This notification requests to check if the page content is still up to date.
14. If applicable, fill in the taxonomy filters. These allow pages to be found quickly. Read more about how the Plek taxonomy works here.
15. When you are happy with your new static information page, click Create. Not sure about the content of the page? Then save it as a draft. You can then continue editing and publishing at a later moment.
As a group administrator, you can always change the content of existing group pages. Furthermore, you can determine the order in which the pages in the group are displayed in the tab (next to the timeline, for example).
