Page tree

Group administrators can create, edit, and arrange all the groups within your City instance. There are five primary tools on the Groups menu:

  1. A link to the group tree
  2. A link for creating a new group
  3. The Search for a group field
  4. A link for inviting people to neighborhood groups in bulk
  5. A link for exporting a list of all your City's groups

If you know the specific group you're looking for, you can use Search for a group field to find it quickly, or by selecting one of the group type check boxes to filter the search results down to a specific group type.

Sub Navigation Info

Once you select the group you're looking for, there are six options that provide all the tools you need to edit and manage it.

Basic Settings: Use this tool to edit the group’s name, ideal size, group type, parent group, description, and address.

Advanced Settings: Use this panel to change some of the customizable features of the group, including posting options, increased  encryption settings, hidden status, auto-approval of invitation requests, space, and the group's time zone.

View Participants: Here you find a complete list of all the participants in this group, divided into the three categories: Online Participants, Inactive Participants, and Offline Participants. Click the one you need and see each user in the group and their current role, which you can change as an administrator. You can also search for a specific subset of users or export a list of group participants.

Add Participants: Use this panel to invite people to the group and manage Pending Invitations.

Group Statistics: Select this feature to get an instant statistical overview of the group and its participants.

Import Tools: Use this utility to do a number of things all circling around large updates and changes to a group. These include bulk invitations, offline user imports, and user data updates.

Things to Remember

  • Many of these settings can also be reset by the group's leaders and managers, who have access to group settings.
  • Setting an ideal size for a group is neither required nor restrictive. It reflects a group size that seems optimal, but does not limit how many people can participate.
