Associated applications 

When you create or edit a community, you can associate different applications with the community, if your administrator has made them available for your deployment.

When your administrator has enabled associated applications for communities, the Start a Community and the Edit a Community forms display an Associated Applications area that lists the options available for your deployment.

For example, the administrator can enable you to associate an IBM Lotus Quickr team place with a community, giving you a central location to store and manage files, and share information with fellow community members.

Application Description
Lotus Quickr Depending on your organization's needs, your administrator can enable different types of Lotus Quickr place for association with a community. Options might include the following:

  • Wiki – creates a place where community members can collaborate and create shared content.

  • Team space – creates a place where team members can manage different types of content.

Note: If you delete the community associated with a Confluence wiki, the wiki is automatically deleted.
