Create a Community Hub

This is part of Multiple Community Hubs.

Administrators can create a Community Hub for one of your association's entities.

  1. From Setup, enter Custom Metadata Types in the Quick Find box, then select Custom Metadata Types.
    1. Click Manage Records next to Tag for the Community Hub installed package.
    2. Click Edit next to MultipleCommunitiesWIN18.
    3. Select Is Active.
    4. Click Save.
  2. Add fields to the Entity Page Layout:
    1. From Setup, click Object Manager
    2. In the Custom Objects list, click Entity.
    3. In the Page Layouts, click Entity Layout.
    4. IF it does not already exist, we recommend that you create a new Community Hub section under the Accounting section.
    5. If they are on the page layout, move Payment URL (Order), Payment URL (Cart), Checkout URL, and Download Proxy URL to the Community Hub section.
    6. In the Community Hub section, add Community Hub URL.
    7. Click Save.
      1. In the App Menu, select Community Hub Setup.
      2. In the tab bar, click Community Hubs.
      3. Click New Community Hub.
      4. In Community, select the Salesforce community to use for the Community Hub.
      5. In Entity, select the entity to use for processing financials in the Community Hub.
      6. If another Community Hub exists in your org, in Build Option, select:
        1. Blank—Create a new Community Hub with no components.
        2. Clone—Create a new Community Hub with copies of the pages and navigation items from the selected Community Hub. The pages and navigation items in the new Community Hub will use all the same components—like access controls and cards—as the Community Hub it was cloned from.
          1. In From, select the Community Hub from which to clone.
      7. Click Save.

      8. If the selected entity already has a community URL for another Community Hub—which determines the shareable Community Hub URLs for the entity—you can continue without changing the community URL or update the entity to change the shareable Community Hub URLs.

      9. If this is your only Community Hub, and you have multiple entities, on each entity:

        1. Update Checkout Page for donations in Community Hub.
        2. In Download Proxy Page, enter the relative path of the page that validates user access to downloadable content. For example: nc__download.

        3. in Community Hub URL, enter the community URL for this Community Hub.

          Update the Community URL of an Entity

          1. Find the community URL:
            1. From Setup, enter Communities in the Quick Find box, then select All Communities.
            2. Note the URL for the community.
          2. Update the entity:
            1. In the tab bar, click  
              Nimble AMS, Staff View, Button, All Tabs
            2. Click  Entities .
            3. Select a list view—like All Active Entities—and click  Go!
            4. Click  Edit  next to the  entity  you want to modify.
            5. Make the desired changes.
            6. Click  Save .
      To help you get started with multiple Community Hubs, if you are creating your first Community Hub record, the existing theme, as well as all pages and navigation items will be associated with this Community Hub; leaving your constituent's online experience unchanged.

      WCAG Compliance

      We recommend following the WCAG guidelines while creating Community Hub to make content more accessible to a wider range of constituents, who have disabilities, or age-related issues in accessing the communities. Web Content Accessibility Guidelines WCAG 2.1 (external) define how to make Web content more accessible to people with disabilities.
