Working with the homepage as an external user

External users cannot see the following functions or perform the following tasks:
  • Cannot post a status message on the home page, or see status messages posted outside of communities. Some organization-specific information (such as recommended people and content) may also not display for external users.
  • Have reduced menu options on the home page; they can only see the Discover top level view and the I'm Following/Tags view
  • Do not get a sharebox at top of the activity stream.
  • Cannot post directly to people in the global sharebox. However, external users can post directly to their community.
  • See a reduced app set.
  • Cannot see recommended content or people
    Note: External users cannot see public recommendations but they can see private recommendations. For example, External users can see a file recommended to them within a community to which they are a member.
  • Cannot search the profiles filter on main search bar.
Note: External users have their own, tailored getting started page.
