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.

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.

Any documentation on the Open Atrium Domains, app?

I've enabled the plugin, set a base URL. Now how I do configure the specific URL for each space?

I'm new to drupal/OA, and while the marketing is cool, the documentation is lacking big time.

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.

Make a Group a Space Member

I am wondering whether there is a way to make a group a "member" of a space. For example, if I have a group to which all employees belong and I have a space for information relevant to all employees, how do I make the "All Employees" group a member of the "General Information" space?

Display Custom Menu Based on Parent Space

We’re using OA to build a single site that “feels” like two. To accomplish this, we have two parent spaces each with a combination of subspaces and sections.

To feel like two separate sites, each parent space needs to have its own top navigation that remains visible no matter where the user is within that space.

Think traditional top navigation as compared to OA Breadcrumbs, Group menu, and Menu Selected By Page – all of which change depending on where the user is in a space and/or rely on the page having a menu entry.

Show only spaces with default blue print

I have two blue prints for the space content type in OA. On the toolbar dropdown i want to show only the spaces created using the default blue print. AO uses the oa_core_get_groups_by_user_access to pull all spaces a use subscribed to. I want to alter this function to show only spaces created using the default blue print by altering the query used in this function.

All my attempts to do so have. Can someone help me with the piece of code i can add to this function to achieve this functionality.

Group Notifications

I am trying to understand the notification system. I setup a group with 7 members. I also have a discussion section with notifications setup to go to that group.

However, when I create a post/comment, it will say "Notifications sent to 3 users" Which 3? Why only 3? The only thing I can see when I look at the users, is three of them ALSO have group membership of the space in which the discussion is held.

Does this mean the users need to be setup for both space and group membership to get notifications? The space has the group listed in "Inherited" -- why would it not carry over?

Public Space, Private Section

We have spaces that are public, but want to keep certain sections of that space private. I understand I do this by by adding groups, users, or teams to the visibility settings. Given the nature of this site, it is not practical to create groups for each project space, or add individual users to each private section. I created an administrative group, and use it to make the spaces private. This works for me much the same as the admin role. Anyone in it can see whatever they want, so I'm good with that.
