Creating groups from Jive Anywhere

You can use Jive Anywhere to create a group in your community.

If you already have Jive Anywhere open and you want to link a web page to a group or start a discussion about a page in a new group, you can just create the group without leaving the web page. You do need to have permission to create groups in Jive.

For more information, see Take a Quick Tour, Connecting Jive places and web pages, and Creating discussion about web pages.

To create a group from Jive Anywhere:

  1. Using a browser with Jive Anywhere installed, open a web page.
  2. Click the Discuss tab on the right side of your browser. If you're connected to multiple communities, select the community where you want to post.
  3. Click Related at the top of the pane.
  4. If there are no places connected, click Create a new connected group to create a new Jive group. If there is at least one place connected, then click Actions > Create a new connected group.
  5. Give the group a name, description, and select the group type.
    You can create an open, members-only, private, or private unlisted (secret) group, as you do in Jive.
  6. Click Create.

A new group which is connected to the web page is created in the community.
