Artefacts from group to display at institution?
21 March 2009, 16:23Hi! Is it possible to show an artefact of a group (for example the forum of a group) within an institution's view? I would like to use the functions of groups (for example forums) for institutions. Thanks for your answer.

there is no way to integrate group stuff into a institution view. Especially it is not possible to show the forums because the are no artefacts.
The institution views are like templates a good place if you want to create a view which you want to copy for different usage. E.g. I use it for my classes. I create a institution view with the general stuff i want to show the classes for introduction, then in the group area i modify this view so that the students see their special welcome "Dear studenst of class XXX"
The institutions views are not visible till you use/copy them for a special group/public www/person.
