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.Read more
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.Read more
I am currently using OA 2.16. I created a new print for the spaces and i am wondering how i can separate the default spaces from the ones i have created using the new spaces blue print.
I want to a different page for the spaces created using the new blue print and i dont want the spaces created with the new blue print to appear in the spaces dropdown on the main menu bar but i cant figure out how to separate spaces created from the two blue prints.
Nay help is highly appreciated. Thanks in advanceRead more
Are there any plans to move the Paragraphs integration from OA 2.3 to Panopoly ? (or is someone already working on that ? )Read more
Can I add a menu widget to all document pages automatically or do I have add it manually for each page?Read more
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?Read more
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.Read more

I'm starting to look at adding clients to an open atrium instance. Each of these clients will have a workspace, and multiple users. The intention was to create a group for each client, then add user to the group. Access to their space (and subspaces/sections) would then be facilitated by adding the group to the membership of the correct space.Read more
multilingual OA: field_oa_worktracker_priority, ield_oa_worktracker_task_type, field_oa_worktracker_task_status translations
I am constructing a bilingual OA site (English and French). When I enabled 'with field translation' for the task, I found all allowed values of fields:
were rolled back to the initial settings of the allowed values of those fields and I do not think the callback function is working.
For instance, I changed the allowed values of field priority to:
However, when I open task edit form, I got:
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.

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
