Before you begin

About this task

There are two types of community activities - implicit and explicit. In an implicit community activity all the members of the community are added as Authors to the community activity by default. In an explicit community activity you can select which members of the community have access to the community activity. The selected members can have Owner, Author or Reader access. If you select three members, they can all have the same access or they can each have a different access level.


To change an explicit activity into an implicit community activity, follow these steps:

  1. From the My Activities view, open a community activity.
  2. Click Members. Be sure that you click the Members link for theActivity Outline and not the link in the community card section.
  3. Click Add Members.
  4. Select Allow all members of this community access in the activity as Author., and then change the role to one of the following options:
    Expands the access of the selected people. Owners can add content, view and edit all entries, and manage the membership of the activity.
    Limits the access of the selected people. Readers cannot contribute to an activity; access is restricted to only viewing content.
  5. Select the check box for each person for whom you want to apply the role.
  6. Click Save.
