Enable the Global Header for Communities

When Communities is enabled, the global header allows you to easily switch between your communities and your internal organization. Communities must be enabled in your organization to use the global header


The View Global Header permission is disabled by default for all standard profiles.

2. Click New and create a permission set that includes the System Permission View Global Header.

3. Assign the permission set to the appropriate users. Users with this permission set see the global header at the top of all pages.

They can use the menu on the left to switch between their internal organization and any communities they have access to.
