Connecting to your community

After you first install Jive for Office, it might not be completely set up to connect to the community you want to synchronize documents with. To connect, you need to provide your user name and password.

To get connected to your community:

  1. Open a Microsoft Office application.
  2. On the ribbon, go to the Jive tab.
  3. In Other, click Accounts.
  4. Click Add to add your Jive account.
  5. Enter the Community URL, which is the exact URL that you use to navigate and login to your community.
  6. Enter your Jive user name and password.
  7. Click Log in.

Jive for Office verifies your credentials and logs you in. Now that you connected to your community, you can add documents to the community. For more information, see Adding documents to community.
