Summary of the article:
Once designated manager, the member can access a new tab from the Administration menu. A new Home icon also appears in the left sidebar.
Once the Homepage is activated by an administrator, it is only accessible to managers until they choose to make it visible.
NB: an administrator is not designated manager of the homepage by default. If he wants to manage the module, he needs to designate himself as manager.
Creating a homepage
Depending on what your communication objectives are, you can create one homepage or more.
To do so:
simply click on + Add a page from the Administration
or, from the Home icon, select the + tab

who will be able to see the page,
the status of the page (Draft or Published).
You can display the page to:
1/ everyone, i.e. administrators, members and guests.
