How are communities structured and what do I need to bear in mind?
Step 1: Create a community
Communities are based on voluntary participation. You can thus invite members but cannot force someone to be a member of the community.
Step 2: Name and description
The description gives you the option of offering more information and describing the aim of the project or your team in more detail. We recommend completing the field but it is not mandatory.
Only categories that already exist can be selected here. Categories can be added on the communities overview page. You require the appropriate permission to create categories.
Step 3: Access, editing, and visibility settings
This step is (almost) self-explanatory: Only users who are also the admin of the communities are also allowed to make changes. You therefore define who, apart from you – as the creator, you are automatically an admin – is allowed to edit the element.
With the help of the visibility settings, you determine who is allowed to join your community. You can find out more about visibility in this article.
There are no limits for communities – anything’s possible. However, to help you get started with COYO, we have put together a few typical examples for you.
