Hi Scott K Wilder - There is a "Key Content and Places" Tile you can add to your activity pages. This lets you create a tile where you can add a list of groups.
Is this along the lines of what you're thinking?
That's good to know. Actually, I was looking for something that displays all the groups an individual belongs too.
John Smith's Groups
-Marketing secret Group
-Digital secret group
Peggy Lee Groups
John and Peggy have different groups -- and it would be great to dynamically display them so it's easier for them to find.
Ah, I see now. It doesn't look like there is a way to dynamically generate that type of information in a tile or widget today. I expect it's possible through a custom tile, but there isn't anything like that out of the box today.
From what I've been able to tell, tile information isn't personalized to an individual. So, the tile is essentially a bucket of data specific to the group and not to the individuals using the group.
I am not clear if you are interested in tiles in particular or just want to know what options people have to get to their groups. I'm assuming is the latter so here are some options that are not tile related.
Other ways to get to the same info:
1) From your Inbox/ Activity - Your View which will show Frequently viewed places (assuming you visit frequently those you are interested in):
2) From your profile More > Places
3) A widget that can display groups based on tags and user access.
4) You can add a link either in a menu or a formatted text/ html widget that brings up the pre-filtered places search to show places you are Following (includes those you own and others you have access to and chose to Follow)
Hope this helps.
