Pages are the place where editorial content is managed and made available for users. Pages are also ideal for making company data and information available. You can find out below how to create a page.
How are pages structured and what do I need to bear in mind?
Pages differ visually from communities above all in that they have a cover picture next to the avatar. The cover picture once again offers the possibility of particularly highlighting pages, boosting recognition, and creating a meaningful overall image.
Step 1: Create page
You can create a new page easily in the overview of all pages using the "Create page" button.
If you are unable to see this button, you should first check whether you have all the necessary permissions for this action.
Step 2: Name and description
The rest of the process of creating a new page
is very simple: an assistant guides you towards creating a fully functioning framework in two steps. Choose a name
for your page that corresponds to the content found there. The name you select is used as the basis for the allocated URL
. As a result, every name can only be allocated once.
gives you the option of offering more information and describing the content of the page. With the help of the categories
, you offer guidance to users regarding the subject and purpose of your page. Categories can also be filtered
in the global search.
You create the categories in the overview, provided you have the permission for this. You can only select existing categories when creating the page.
Step 3: Access, editing, and visibility settings
This step is (almost) self-explanatory: Only users who are also the admin of the page are also allowed to make changes. You 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 can subscribe to your page. You can find out more about visibility in this article.
Step 4: Auto-subscribe
In the last step, you can set whether users should automatically subscribe to the page. You can findout all about this in the article "Automatic subscription".
Examples to get started with COYO
Especially when getting started with COYO, pages offer the most important source of information for your colleagues. The scope and level of detail of the pages depends significantly on the respective company. The general rule is: Less is more!
Consider what information your users are looking for and what’s important for their everyday work. Then look at whether and how certain topics and be clustered. For companies with multiple locations, location pages are an option to address the respective target groups in the best possible way.
In our example
, we have created a basic structure consisting of the most important company departments as well as separate pages for company news
and about the company.
Further possible use cases:
All of the admins for a page are also shown in the page’s legal notice. This offers users an overview of who is responsible for managing the page. If you want to remove people from here, you must remove them from being an admin of the page.
