I had partial success integrating [Advanced] Forums into Open Atrium.
I have enabled the Forum module in the original OA distribution, then installed and configured Advanced Forum.
After that, I had made the Forum content type Space Aware and Section Aware + all the other steps as per this tutorial (the tutorial shows how to integrate another type of content, but the steps work perfectly for Forum too):
As a result I am now able to create a Forum Section inside a Space.Read more
Open Atrium 2 is a complex distribution with most things already provided for in the Profiles folder, particularly theming.
I am having trouble finding where everything is for the purpose of changing how things look and function.
For example. I want to provide a number of templates for a user to choose from when creating new content. I can find where the original template is and then add new templates in the same location.
Hello everyone.

I am having trouble with permissions in OA. I would like authenticated users to only view the site and create discussion posts and events. Yet when I log into my test authenticated user account it gives me the option to create documents for each section of the site.
In the authenticated user premissions. Nothing is checked in the Comment Alter, Node has only the view options checked.
I have already rebuilt permissions once. Am I missing something that is enabled?Read more
Been setting up a number of spaces by designing blueprints for common feature sets first, then creating spaces from these blueprints. I now need to make some changes to the worktracker config (adding status and type values). Problem is, the cloned spaces do not inherit these changes and I can't find a way to add these values.
This appears to be the behaviour described in this bug report, but there doesn't appear to have been any movement on it.Read more
I have installed OA2 for a middle school intranet, and it seems I have most things done (OA2 makes it easy to set up academic Departments, and teaches classroom spaces), But what I am trying to do is when a teacher logs in, I want their dashboard to have a default set of panels in view, like news, discussions and such, but when a student logs in, since they we are dealing with 11-13 years olds, I want to have a default panels like their Assignments, spaces(classes) resources(attachments related to their assignments) in view. Is there a way to have different dashboard layouts based on roles?Read more
I have created a intranet using Open Atrium 2 and having some problems with the menu structure. So far I have created 1 space with 6 sections under it. While creating documents under the section the menu option does not allow me to use the section pages as the parent. I only see the Group Menu. I would like to have a section menu that is expandible with child pages. Am I missing something in the structure.Read more
Apologies in advance for the daft queries, just delving into Drupal/Open Atrium for the first time.
I've been attempting to make some edits to the oa home page, and while editing the content is no problem, it appears the source CSS runs through some build process? Is there a way to commit changes I make in the source CSS? For reference, the CSS I'm editing is here;
I want to be able to show only top level spaces that a user subscribed to in the Subscribed spaces section assuming a that a user subscribed to a space and its subspace. How do i go about this? Any help is appreciated.Read more
Sorry if this is a newbie question, but I am trying to setup an intranet and have a section for HR forms (new employee, vacation request, etc.). I have installed webforms, and can create the form with no problem. However, It doesn't appear inside a specific section unless I manually create a link for it on the Space homepage.
Is there an easier/better way to do this so all the forms I create inside the space show up automatically?Read more

With reference to the 15th October security alert. https://www.drupal.org/PSA-2014-003
Does anyone know how this affects Open Atrium installations and how quickly did the download packages get patched?
Having downloaded openatrium-7.x-2.23-core on the 30th of October I am hoping that the install package has already been patched.
Can anyone confirm this so I don't need to delete my development and start again.
After upgrading to OA 2.22 our space homepages are giving PDO exceptions. One function that is triggering the exception is oa_core_space_sections() in oa_core.util.inc – the function is being passed a string value of 'All' for the $gid parameter which is causing the DB query to fall over as it is an integer column in the database.Read more
Can Open Atrium be used as an alternative to Drupal Multisite for a University Portal with many sub sites for different Departments/Campuses and Sub Departments? Every Department having separate Layout? This can be done in native OG with OG theme or Themekey modules but can OA be an advantage? Also does OA allow URL Persistence for a Particular Groups page?something we achieve in OG based multisites via PURL and OG Purl so that the theme doesn't change for content of a particular Group?Read more

The user defaults for views is user activity: user_actitivy
Thus, when one user clicks on the name or picture of another user, the other user's activity page comes up. I want to change the default to a custom profile page I have created. Is there a way, without going into code, to change the defaults from user activity to a custom page?
I can't seem to figure this out.
This may seem simple to some but within the confines of OA can you tell me how we can allow different colours for different panes? For example we have a project page with discussion, tasks etc . I would like each to have its own colour but when I use the settings and edit the coloriser it changes ALL panes to be the same?
