Groups have two main factors to a successful program: content and people.
This article outlines the possible ways someone can join a Group to start viewing, contributing, and sharing the content within.
Join a public Group
Anyone can join a public Group at any time. Take the following steps to join a Group.
- Go to Groups.
- Select All Groups.
- Find the Group to join.
- Click Join.
Once the Join button is clicked, you'll become a member of the Group and can view, contribute, and share content from the Group.
Join a private Group
Private Groups are visible if an Admin has created an Assignment to require or suggest the Group.
Required Groups are Groups you automatically join. These Groups will show in the Following tab.
Suggested Groups are not joined automatically; but, you can see them in the Groups tab under Recommended. Private Groups will have a lock icon next to the Group title to indicate it's a private Group. Click Join when you are ready to participate in the suggested Private Group.
Options to add people to a Group
Admins and Moderators have the ability to manage user permissions and Group access. There are two options to add team members to a Group.
🔸 This is accessible to Admin and Group Moderators.
🔹 This is available on the Teams, Enterprise, and Unlimited plans.
The most popular way to add people to a Group is to automate it using Assignments. Check out this article for more details on using Assignments.
Manually add people to a Group
Admins and Moderators can add people to a single Group, without using Assignments, as long as the Group is set to Private.
- Go to a Private Group.
- Go to Members.
- Click the + plus icon.
- Type the person's name into the field.
- Confirm the selection and click Done.
🔹Note: If you want to add a person to a public Group, an Admin must edit the Group and make it private.
