Using social groups

Social groups help you bring people together around shared interests, ideas, and projects. Here you can find how to create and manage social groups in Jive.

Groups, or social groups, are isolated containers within a community; they have no ties to other places and cannot have sub-groups. Permissions are managed on a per-group basis by the original group creator or the admins selected for the group, or both. Groups can also house any type of content unless one or more is turned off by community administrators. Because they are a freely created containers, groups get used most often for topic-specific collaboration, rather than something general to a team. They also get used for collaboration between specific teams or different departments that often work together closely and rely on each other.
