    User Group Directory

    There are multiple ways you can search for user groups on the community.

      • User groups are displayed by geographic region about midway down the community home page. These are groups that are currently active on the community. Click on any group to learn more about each user group.
        • APAC Groups – Asia Pacific
        • EMEA Groups – Europe, Middle East, and Africa
        • LAD Groups – Latin America
        • NA Groups – North America
      • You can also find user groups by name by using the portal’s search feature located in the top navigation bar (click the magnifying glass).
      • Directories for each region are also posted along the right navigation on the community home page. These are user groups that exist in the region; however, not all groups will be active on the community.

     

    In the coming weeks, we’ll be introducing an enhancement here that we’re very excited about. Stay tuned for further updates!
