Add Custom Navigation in BuddyPress

This snippet will add a new tab and load whatever content you place within wps_sample_action_content() function. You could potentially have anything within this function including a custom loop to show members, activity or really anything you can think of. You can adjust the slug, the text displayed within the tab, tab position, and so on. Just add this snippet to bp-custom.php or functions.php to make your changes and you're all set.

add_action( 'bp_setup_nav', 'wps_sample_action', 50 );

function wps_sample_action() {
    global $bp;
            'name'                => __( 'Sample Page', 'buddypress' ),
            'slug'                => 'sample',
            'position'            => 50,
            'screen_function'     => 'wps_sample_action_template',
            'default_subnav_slug' => 'sample',
            'parent_url'          => $bp->loggedin_user->domain . $bp->slug . '/',
            'parent_slug'         => $bp->slug
        ) );

function wps_sample_action_template() {
    add_action( 'bp_template_title', 'wps_sample_action_title' );
    add_action( 'bp_template_content', 'wps_sample_action_content' );
    bp_core_load_template( apply_filters( 'bp_core_template_plugin', 'members/single/plugins' ) );

function wps_sample_action_title() {
    echo 'Sample page title';

function wps_sample_action_content() {
    echo 'Sample page content';
