    When setting up a new place there are three main options to choose from:


    1. Activity + Pages (Default selection)
    2. Overview
    3. Activity + Overview
      1. Landing Page: Activity Page
      2. Landing Page: Overview Page

    By default the "Activity + Pages" place navigation option will always be selected for all new places.


    In Jive 8 there is a system property available that will allow you configure the default selection for this configuration for new places.


    This does not allow you to go back and change the configurations for previously created groups.



    • Applies to Jive 8
    • Does not apply to Jive 7 or Jive Cloud



    You can control the default selection for the Place navigation configuration by using the places.default.placeTabVisibility system property.


    There are four possible configurations:
