At /MonoX/Pages/SocialNetworking/Groups.aspx it says on top All Groups

I suggest you change that label to a clickable link that takes you to /MonoX/Pages/SocialNetworking/Groups/GroupSearch/ to show all the groups

this is cause the current behaviour is that after you join if you visit that page (we call it "my Groups" in the menu), you see all groups and you can join some, but after you join it only shows the ones you have joined (or you have been added to by some admin)

so with the above link you'll be able to easily go to the all groups view to join more (the other way is to do a group search from the right handside in that page without any search text, but that won't be obvious to all users)

Hi,

thanks for the feedback, we are working on similar changes around social dashboard and groups. So everything that you have put in this post makes perfect sense as some of the navigation on the groups pages wasn't that obvious so we will definitely add some of the suggested changes. I'll try to squeeze this in next nightly build, but I can't promise anything.

Thanks

I ended up editing \MonoX\ModuleGallery\SocialNetworking\Groups\GroupList.ascx to change option-menu it has there to:

<div class="option-menu">
<asp:HyperLink runat="server" NavigateUrl="/MonoX/Pages/SocialNetworking/Groups/GroupSearch/" Text="All Groups" /> <!-- TODO: need to localize this -->
<asp:HyperLink runat="server" ID="lnkAddNew"></asp:HyperLink>
</div>

1) not sure what's the proper way to localize my strings there
2) since I now add an "All Groups" button under the "My Groups" header shown after you've joined one group (that same header says "All Groups" when seeing all groups from the URL .../Groups/GroupSearch/ I was mentioning above), I see "All Groups" option before the "Add new group" option and is fine when showing under My Groups title, but when showing under All Groups title isn't looking very normal. Ideally I'd like to not show that option when seeing all groups, but not sure how GroupList.ascx can get notified of that case

Hi, we have added these links as "static" links for now and they would be available in today's nightly build.

Regards
