Find groups using a colleague's profile page

Browsing the profiles of colleagues who have similar interests, skill sets, or job duties can help you find groups that you might want to join. To find groups from a colleague's profile:

  1. Go to your profile page and select View All Colleagues (located in the My Colleagues box).
  2. Click on the name of the colleague whose profile page you would like to view.
  3. On their profile, look for their Groups widget. (If you cannot see the Group membership widget, your colleague may have hidden this information from his or her profile page).
    • This will list some of the groups your colleague is a member of.
    • Click View All Groups to see all of the groups your colleague is a member of.
