Enable and Create Community in Salesforce Lightning | Getting start with Communities

In this blog you will learn how you can enable and create a new community.

Please follow below steps : 
  • Click Settings icon and select Setup.
  • Type Communities in the Quick Find box, then select Communities Settings.
  • Select Enable communities.
  • Enter a unique name to be used as your domain name and click Check Availability. 
  • Keep in mind that you can’t change the domain name yourself after you save it. You have to call Salesforce to change it.
  • Click Save, and then click OK.
  • If you see a dialog asking to open a Salesforce page in a new tab, click Open.
High-five, trailblazer! You’ve just created your custom domain.

Set Up a Basic Community
Now let’s set up a basic community. You should have been redirected to the All Communities page in Setup, but if not, enter Communities in Quick Find, and select All Communities.

  • Click New Community.
  • Select the template.
  • Click Get Started.
  • Enter a community name and URL. 
  • Name the community <your first name and last name>.
  • Specify the optional URL. The URL should look something like this: https://[your name]-developer-edition.na111.force.com/xxxxxx.
  • It’s important that you specify a URL, even though this field says optional. This enables you to share your public URL with others.
  • Click Create.
  • Your community has been created in Preview status, which means that what you have created isn’t in the world yet.
