How do you use the group finder?

This may sound dumb, but hey, I can't figure it out. I click on the icon I see the options for FP and for Planetary locations. Although I have no idea what the planetary locations section is for, I care about the FP. I had grabbed the BT quest clicked the icon for group finder, selected FP button and hit 'join qu'. Great it worked got a group a while later.

Now I'm 16, I picked up Hammer Station from the currier, and then tried the group finder. I can't select the button for FP. I click the button to see the list of all FP and they are all greyed out, including Hammer. I reset the quest, I abandoned and got it again, all with the same results. So essentially, I'm not able to join a que for a FP I infact have the quest for and am even of level for.

Am I missing something here on how to use the group finder? Or is this a bug?

Abandon any flashpoint quests and then use the group finder (do not manually re-acquire any quests).

Greetings Squidwalker!

You can find more information about our current list of Group Finder issues, as well as other game play issues, in our Known In-Game Issues thread by Live Community Coordinator, Amber Green:

UPDATED: June 28th, 2012

Group Finder
  • Group Finder will not allow players to select or queue for content that is already listed in their Mission Log.
    Workaround:Players must complete or abandon any Flashpoint or Operation missions that are currently in the Mission Log and then refresh the user interface (CTRL+U twice).


  • If group leadership is transferred manually after a group member quits or is vote-kicked, the new group leader will be unable to use the Group Finder to queue for a replacement player to fill the empty group slot until the group composition changes again.*


  • If a player gets an "Invalid Group" error, pressing the "Update Roles" button will cause the whole group, rather than only the player, to repeatedly see "Your group has been added to the group finder queue."


  • When players are prompted with a vote-kick popup, the role icon does not correctly match the role of the player named.


  • A group seeking replacement members via Group Finder that leaves the queue will not be able to select "Find Replacement" again, and will only be able to enter the queue for a new group that will reset their content.


  • After losing two party members, the Group Finder Icon Tooltip displayed to the Group Leader will incorrectly message that the group is queued for a replacement.


  • When attempting to manually add a replacement player to a group that is waiting to fill the slot via the Groupfinder Queue, players will not be given an error message indicating that their action is not allowed.
We hope this helps!

First you have to be the correct level range to run a FP, it will show others that are higher level then you but you cannot do them till you reach that level.

Second try right clicking on your picture (bottom of screen) and resetting your active phases

You can only use group finder to run the flashpoints within the range of your level. You want to run the lower one, Just walk through the portal.
