Open Atrium

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

This group is to relate experiences with Open Atrium and share ideas about this install profile along with understanding and leveraging Spaces, Features, and Contexts for making it work better for you.

Talk with other community members here, in the issue queue on and on IRC in the #open_atrium channel on

If you're just getting started, you might find the documentation pages useful.

Custom Content Type Creation

I am fairly new to Open Atrium. I have been experimenting with creating a project portal that would require custom content types (such as companies, contracts, timesheet, etc.). I have been able to create these and also modify the layouts perfectly but I keep running into an issue when adding a group to a space.

Open Atrium Memory Issue

I am new to open atrium and have just started to work on how to manage permissions via groups and teams. I navigated to a space, created a group and received an error after submitting. The php memory limit was at 256M so I increased to 512M and restarted the web server. Now I cannot access the home page of the site. Here is the error I am receiving:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 536870912 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7 bytes) in /home/mikeg/public_html/hive/profiles/openatrium/modules/contrib/og_subgroups/ on line 273

Installation issue; Drupal ok, not OA


I have severe issues with installing OA.

I have managed to install the following ;
- Drupal
- Drupal acquia

But when I try to install OA I fail. The process works fine, but at the last step I get a few warnings, then visiting Your New Site I get an "Error. Please try again later".

I use php 5.5.30, mySql 5.7 and IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008.

Can someone give me any clues what could be the issue? What requirements do OA have that Drupal dont? Since I have a working Drupal 7-site it should work, right?

Can I upgrade my working Drupal 7 to OA? How would I do that?

Open Atrium Sub Theming on Pantheon

I'm trying to subtheme my site on Pantheon. I am using a Drush Alias from a Drush install on a Ubuntu VM. Drush commands for installing modules work fine but when I come try:
drush @[alias] oa_radix newsubtheme
I get:
The drush command 'newsubtheme' could not be found. Run drush cache-clear drush to clear the commandfile cache if you have installed new extensions.

I have tried adding
to the command, as well as downloading oa_radix with Drush (this also works fine) and clearing the cache.

Can anyone explain what I can do to make this work?

User Notification Settings: change default settings and modify in bulk


I have some questions regarding space notification messages (such as Comment/New Content/Deleted/Membership in /user/$uid/settings )

Is it possible to set a global default for the selection of these notifications when any user joins any space?

Is it possible to bulk edit users' notifications preferences, perhaps on a per-space basis?

I'm guessing the first, the global default, could be pulled off with code invoking some sort of hook, but I'm at a loss to know what that might be or what settings I'd have to alter.

Server Setup for OA Instance

We need to get some replicated/load balanced servers set up to host an Open Atrium instance to provide an intranet for our University (based in the UK). We plan to host these in our existing on-campus data centre (VMware).

Due to resourcing issues we need to outsource the server set up work, but once set up we would maintain the servers and OA instance in-house.

How to format the content view?

I followed this webinar:

In it, Mike Potter walks you through how to create a new content type, make it atrium-aware, and then create a view to list that content type. Then he creates a new section type for the new content, and adds the custom list view to that section type.

Mike did a great job and I was able to follow along fine.

At about 30:20 in that webinar, he shows how the newly-created piece of content is displayed a very "raw" way, un-formatted data from the content fields being spit out on to the page.

Installation profile based on openatrium

I am trying to create a Drupal installation profile that inherits from openatrium:

What I want to achieve is a standard OpenAtrium installation, with some extra customizations on top of it.

The problem is that it fails at the step "Install Apps" with the error "Unable to connect to Apps Server." However when I try to install the profile "openatrium" it works well.
