You should customize the number of communities depending on how big your project team is: the smaller the team, the smaller you keep the number of communities and let the users find out for themselves what communities are best suited for.
Initial communities for important teams/departments
One proven approach is for the most important teams or departments to create communities with initial apps and invite the corresponding target groups. An inviting post and initial content help to get things started and take away the "fear" of being the first to post, as it’s initially easier to read and like content than to become active yourself in a new environment.

Beginnings are always difficult, so it’s a good idea to offer users help with Haiilo in Haiilo. Why not use a community? Your internal Haiilo experts can answer any questions that emerge there with a forum app, for instance, and thus also encourage other users to contribute their ideas and answers. With an additional wiki, it’s possible for you to provide CI-compliant guides on important functions. Other apps can be added here.
