How to create Groups

Create groups within your community to give people a place to discuss specific topics. Similar to a sub-forum.

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 Type permission settings cannot be changed once a group is created.
