In order to add people to a group, or share pages and collections with them open the 'find people' page directly from the Engage menu.
This will open the 'Find people' page.
Alternatively, at the top of the page, there is a 'search users' box to search for other users within Mahara. Type all or part of the persons name and click on the search icon.
This will open the 'Find people' page with results already filtered.
Within this page, use the 'Search: (Everyone)' box which allows you to search for users by name. You can use this to find classmates or course leaders in order to send them messages friend requests or add them to groups.
Search your portfolio
There are two search locations available within the Portfolio / pages and collections section.
The first appears at the top of Pages and collections and allows searching by title, description and tags. Search results can be sorted alphabetically, by date created and last modified amongst other options.
Results are returned as a selection of the pages / collections in a grid view.
The second search options appears in the menu on the right hand side (below the Tags window if this is present). In tests we have found that this is not as reliable a search as the pages and collections version.
Results (when any are found) are returned as a simple list with location information.
The information on this page relates to Mahara 20.04 and was last updated August 2020.
