This manual explains the Organization Profiles extension for the Open Social platform, how Site and Content Managers can create and manage Organization Profiles, the role of an Organization Manager, and how community members can engage with Organization Profiles. This page covers what Organization Profiles are and what they do.

What are the Organization Profiles?

The Organization Profiles are an extension of the Profile organization tag available in Core Features. The Organization Profiles adds profile pages for organizations so that community members can engage with and create organizational relationships. Site Managers can configure the profiles, Content Managers can create, approve and manage the profiles and community members can follow profiles, represent an organization in the community, and submit a new organization profile to become an Organization Manager.
