Create a group in your community.
Groups are a great way to segment your audience whether it’s by geographic location, event or a designated place for specific sharing to take place within. Group permission settings cannot be changed once a group is created.
To begin, make sure you’ve clicked on ‘Groups’ in the main menu in the control center.
Once, in Groups, click on the ‘New Group’ button in the upper right-hand corner right under the main menu.
You’ll need to fill in some information about your group to create it.
Name: What you want your group to be called.
Description: Tell your members what this group is about.
Slug: Customize the end of the URL which identifies a group’s location on the web.
NOTE: the slug is automatically generated based on the name of your group.
Short name: Title of feed within a group, limit of 4 characters.
Color: Choose a color for the group menu & overlay on the art
Icon: Upload a profile image for your group.
Art: Upload an image that represents your group, this can be seen when someone clicks on group info. Similar to a cover photo.
Group type: Choose from the dropdown menu of open, gated, closed, or restricted. See “Group Permission Settings” to help you choose.
Once complete, click the create group button once your information is filled out and you’re done!
