Adding custom pages to places

If you are a place owner, you can add your own custom pages to a place to allow more flexibility in designing places for specific needs. For example, you might add a Product Schedule page that shows your upcoming shipping dates and product owners.

For communities with widgets enabled, you need to set the place to Activity + Pages to see this option. For more information, see Adding Overview page.

Important: We do not recommend that you use widgets and widgetized Overview pages in your community. For more information, see Understanding pages in places.

You can add a new page to your place to spotlight and organize content in that place. Once you add a page, you populate it with tiles tailored for that place. For example, you may want to dedicate a page to one important document by using a Document Viewer tile, or you may want to add a creative flair to your place by using an HTML tile.

You need to be able to edit a place to add tiles to Activity and custom pages.

Note: Your community manager determines the number of custom pages you can add to a place. The default number is five.

To add a new custom page to your place:

  1. In your group, click Manage > New page.
  2. In the Create a page dialog box, enter a name for your page.
  3. Select the column layout you want for the new page.
  4. Click OK.
    The page opens for editing.
  5. Add and configure the tiles you want to appear on the new page.
    You must add at least one tile.
  6. Click Save.

New pages appear first in the place navigation menu.

  • To make changes to your page, go to the page and click the Gear icon > Edit page.
Attention: If you enable widgets and reset the place pages to Overview or Activity + Overview and save that change, you'll no longer see the new page you just created. However, if you then reset the navigation to Activity + Pages and save that change, you'll see your custom page again. You don't actually lose any new pages you have created if you change the place pages. You just don't see them when the place pages are set to Overview or Activity + Overview.
