Salesforce1 - Accessing Community in Salesforce1 Mobile Application

Hi Guys,

We are trying to make use of Salesforce1 Mobile app for allowing user to use our community. Using the Community Login URL, i have added the server from "Change Server" option in the top right menu. Now, our community login page loads up at first.

Once community user enters username and password, it redirects them to the landing page. After login, there is another option in top right menu as 'Reload'. This is for reloading the page, but if we do reload, then a popup window appearing as 'Salesforce1/chatter for Android’ requesting permission to access (Allow/Deny). In order to avoid this, we have given 'Salesforce1/chatter for Android’ permission at the profile level. But still this popup shows up and prompts the user to Allow or Deny everytime.

Q: What should we do to stop this popup prompting user to allow or deny permission?

Even if we Allow, it is taking the user to Salesforce1 Screen (not our visualforce pages in community) of community displaying the available objects on the left menu and feed etc,. Looks like its a standard community page in salesforce1.

Q: Is there any permission needs to be given to overcome/solve this or are we missing something here for accessing community from inside Salesforce1 App?

Mobile Android Version: Android v5.0.1
Enabled the Salesforce1 at the profile level and some of the connected apps also enabled by itself.

Please advise on this.

This is controlled by the associated connected app setting.

* You can pre-authorise certain users so it won't prompt for permissions by chosing the "Admin-approved users are pre-authorized" option
* If you chose 'All Users may self-authorize:', this will ask users to approve once

If it's prompting the user *every time*, double check your connected app settings and try changing it to one of the above. You can read more about connected app setting here (http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/packagingGuide/Content/connected_app_manage_edit.htm).
