Security can be applied at the application level (i.e., inherited by #Channels by default), and you also have the ability to change security settings for the #Channel functionality.


Below are the levels of security full explained for Profiles, Activity Feeds & Private Groups in all subsites.

Setting Security for My Hub:

Security for the My Hub application needs to be set from the Administration following the steps below:


  • Login to the Admin
  • Go to Applications > subsite > My Hub
  • Click on Front End Security
  • Select the users / groups from the list 
  • Select one of the six different security levels from the drop-down
  • Click OK to Save changes




This is where you set up Security for the My Hub application that will then be inherited down by #Channels.


In order to set up Security individually for Channels, go to Front End Security for #Channels and follow the same steps.
