About this task
Anyone who can access a community can view the members for that community.
To view the members of a community, do one of the following actions:
Parent topic: Working with communities
- Use the Members area on the community Overview page to view a random selection of members from the community. Click View All to display the complete list of members on the Members page.
Where ever a member’s name displays in the community, you can access their business card by hovering over their name and clicking the link that is displayed. The business card provides a useful snapshot of a user's profile information. The business card provides links to the IBM Connections applications that are used by the person and allows you to perform a number of actions.
- Click Members in the navigation pane to open the Members page and display a full list of the community membership. Use the Filter by menu to display the complete list of members or to sort the membership list according to role. Use the Sort by options to sort the display in order of Name, which lists members in alphabetical order, or Date Added, which lists the newest members first.
The Members page also displays any groups that have been added to the community, but you cannot view the group membership list from the Members page.
- To find a specific community member, click Find a Member on the Members page and enter a name in the field provided. As you start typing, names from the community membership list are suggested to you. When you see the name that you want, you can click it. If your site uses the Profiles application, the person’s profile displays. If your site does not use the Profiles application, a list of the public communities to which the person belongs displays.
