Adding a Custom Page to a Place

Place owners can add additional pages to a place and configure the pages with tiles. New pages will appear as options in the main header of the place, to the left of the existing links to the place's Content, Activity, and People. Your community manager must enable this feature in the Admin Console for a place owner to see the option of adding pages to a place.

New Pages allow you more flexibility in designing your place for your specific needs. For example, you might add a Product Schedule page that shows your upcoming shipping dates and product owners. Or, you could create a page called The CEO's Blog that features your fearless leader's blog posts.

First, you'll need to set your place's navigation to Activity + Pages:

  1. Go to the place you own and select Manage > Settings.
  2. Click the pencil icon next to the place's name in the place header.
  3. Click Advanced Options > Activity + Pages, and then OK.
  4. Save this change to the place.

Add a New Page to a Place

After you've set the place's navigation to Activity + Pages, you can add a new Page to the place:

  1. Click Manage > New Page. Note that you will only see this option after you've set the place's navigation to Activity + Pages. Your community manager determines the number of custom Pages you can add to a place. The limit is five.
  2. In the Create a Page popup, enter a name for your page.
  3. Select the column layout you want for the new page.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Add and configure the tiles you want to appear on the new page.
  6. Click Save.
To make additional changes, click Edit page in the upper right corner of the page. You can also Delete the page.
Note: If you reset the place's navigation (under Advanced Options) to Overview or Activity + Overview and save that change, you will no longer see the new page you just created. However, if you then reset the place's navigation to Activity + Pages and save that change, you will see your new page again. In other words, you don't actually lose any new pages you have created if you change the place navigation. You just don't see them when the place navigation is set to Overview or Activity + Overview.
