Testing group extras
Project groups are work spaces where a group of people can work collaboratively on one or several projects.
Here we can describe our groups with advanced editor and layout, and provide several additional pages visible in the horizontal menu above. See the tabs up there to access various custom pages.
This custom page bundle can be turned into a group's landing page (i.e. home page) via the extras tab in the admin menu. Please request membership to the testing groups extras group and your 'promotion' to group admin so that you can test it.
In the meantime you can play here on the playground page.
Creating and displaying the extras pages
Look how this is configured an play in the testing groups extras group.
In the general settings, extras fields are not quite useful for us now. They come default as displayed. Here, we have checked hide it so that they don't appear.
The important thing here is to rename the current home page as activity, rename the extras pages as the home page, and once you have saved the general settings a first time, to move (drag and drop) the new home page to the top of the list so that all the links to the group land there.
Then all you need to do is add pages and order them by drag and drop on the all pages tab.
Uses of pages
You can do lots on these pages: insert a Trello project board, feature some specific projects, gather some tips, generate activity of related groups (those that share the same group tags. for this you will need to tag your group so it gets aggregated with others working on similar or adjacent topics so that we can gain visibility on the work in the network).
There's a lot we can do now in terms of visibility and practical organization. We will be improving
