Open Atrium - set up for user to login to space?

Hello, I am trying to figure out how to set it so when a user logs in they are taken to their space's home page?
Is this at all possible? I am not seeing anything in the documentation thus far.

Many thanks!

Main page content block disabled

Good morning,

I am setting an internal wiki for my company and have very few programmatic skills and knowledge.

I accidently disabled the Main Page Content Block and now my website is not displaying any content or information. I cannot even access the configurations to restore the block to the "content" space.

As you can see on the attachment file, I cannot even access the block management content. This is problematic ...

problem with user photo

Hello OA community,

I started with OA at the beginning of April and it is the first time I am trying to set up a site or an intranet. So far I discovered many features and the development was going surprisingly smooth until yesterday. I wanted to add pictures and a user description field to the users. After many hours of trying by myself, with OA documentation, Drupal documentation and various hints on the internet, I am no closer to solve my problem.

User Profile

In the site I am endeavoring to build, the User "Member", IS the most basic content entity. I am trying to build an specific industry hierarchal structure that displays the members' resume and other professional data as well as providing social networking environments for them to interact on common industry issues.

I suppose the substructure is similar to a Job Site where Job Seekers display their experience, skills and product output, and Possible Employers are also job seekers where everyone can discuss their common interests via postings (Comments, Blogs, Discussion, Calendaring of industry events etc.)

How to send notifications only for OA team members?

I have a rule to send an html mail when new content is created, but is not respecting the user permission to access content.

Is an Open Atrium site that works with OG. I have a space with 7 teams and only team members can view team contents (7 sections asociated to 7 teams). All users have the same role (filter by role is not a solution for me).

The content type in question have two entity reference fields: group audience and section (one per team).

Terms and Condition by space or role


I have an OA site with my first space working as a "course" with sections for homework, calendar, resources and team sections for team work. The idea is make this space blueprint for create more courses like this and other 2 types of "courses" (space blueprint). I need to do "legal terms" for users but different for each space (course) or can be by role too and I can create role by type (blueprint) of space.
Also I need a list of users who accepted the terms.

Hi, Pulling what's left of hair out...

So creating a view to show just "new" comments in discussion content type.

For interest this is to display "menu badge" icon on a "forum" section that I have created.

I can see that OA has "new" status possibly using the 'flags' module...but can not seem to leverage this a relationship or filter .

Looking for pointers ...tried using PHP filter in view luck so far...
return comment_num_new($data->nid) == 0;

context menu


I have a large set of content fairly well organized into a menu structure with tagging. A user will typically find a page by search, taxonomy term list, or through the menu at the space level.

When someone views a page I want to display its context in the menu tree. I have added the OG menu tree via panels but it has a fixed starting point(Fixed parent item). Always the same tree is displayed even if the page has no menu item.

What I seek is something like starting point -1: display the page's parent , siblings, and children's menu items.

Integrating Content and Learning Management Systems

Hi there,

I have heard that there are already Use Cases given for using Atrium as an LMS (Learning Management System). If so, can anyone tell me what the status of these are?

At present Atrium appears to me to be a well developed collaboration and content management system with many of the features and functionalities already installed for what I was hoping for from an LMS, but, does not appear to have the capability, yet, to perform the more specialist LMS functions, let alone a few special additional functional developments that I have in mind.

Folder page menu

I'm on the latest version of OA (2.69), trying to figure out how to set up a folder page (document center item) that contains a menu of the items contained within the folder. Seems like something that should be possible with the menu tree options, but I can't get a contextual menu to work.

I've tried adding different menu panes under Admin > Structure > Panelizer > Document Page > Content. The only one that seems to work (i.e. display anything at all) is the Group Menu. Anyone else run into this issue or have a solution?

Can I use existing Drupal users/logins with Open Atrium? LDAP?

Never heard of LDAP until today.

This will be my first Drupal project in 10 years and my first Open Atrium project ever.

The company has an existing public Drupal 7 site and would like to create a separate Open Atrium intranet. Can I use the existing Drupal logins for the new OA2 intranet?

Is LDAP where I should be looking?

Wrapping my head around the Open Atrium Structure

I'm having difficulty figuring out how to make the structure I need work in Open Atrium. I'm wondering if it's even possible. I'm definitely stumped with the words used and how to map things.

I need to have multiple TYPES of groups that fall into 2 CATEGORIES:

1. ACTION groups (TYPES: examples are topic collaboration and event collaboration)
2. PROFILE groups (TYPES: different types of organizations such as government and business)

In my non-Open Atrium site they were all Organic groups with different types of content types within them.

Content section creation outside a customer sub-space


Am using OA2 and I have a general question that seemed to have stumped a couple of the guys that I work with.

Basic setup - OA 2 with the need for a client support ticketing system.

Here is how the site is constructed

Main Space (SUPPORT HOME - Access Public)
The support space for all clients to access, features here include a support wiki's/documents (content) sections.

The clients support pages, holding section for the creation and viewing support tickets.

I see a lot of potential in OA2 but find it very difficult to work with. I encounter a problem and it can take weeks to resolve. I have tried to attract paid support to no avail.

One harebrained scheme is to form a technical collaboration group of others working with OA in a similar way. Fewer members but perhaps more focus and responsiveness. A possibility is common access: see how someone else accomplished something or take a close look at an issue someone else is struggling with.
