You can easily switch between working in your internal organization and collaborating with customers or partners in communities. The global header is not available by default, the administrator for your organization must enable it for community members.
|Available in: Salesforce Classic|
|Available in: Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions|
Organizations who enabled Communities before Winter ‘14 see the new global header by default when they turn on Communities.
The menu on the left side lets you switch between communities and your internal organization.
If an external user who is only a member of one Active
community is given the URL for a Preview
community, they don’t see the drop-down menu in the Preview
You can work in more than one community at a time if you open each one in a different browser tab.
Switching between your internal organization and your communities doesn’t have to disrupt your workflow. We automatically return you to the page where you were last working, so you can pick up right where you left off.
If your organization is setting up My Domain but hasn’t finished deployment of the new custom domain, switching from a community to your internal organization directs you to the Salesforce login page instead. This can happen when you’ve logged in using a My Domain URL that has been registered but not yet deployed. Once your domain is deployed, selecting your organization in the drop-down directs you to the internal organization as expected.
