Your groups are a key part of your Zapnito Community, as they determine what your users are able to do and see on your site.
This article contains the following sections:
Creating new groups
To create a new group, head to Settings > Groups where you will see the option to create a 'New Group'.
The process of setting up a new group has been broken down into two steps:
- Add a group name and select the group type, which can be 'Person' or 'Organization'.
- Add or remove members from the Group Management page. Zapnito administrators will be able to associate the group with abilities on your behalf.
For instructions on how to add and/or remove users from a group, please follow this guide.
Managing existing groups
Navigate to Settings > Groups where you will be able to search for a group and once located, you will find three dots to the right of the group name which will enable the community manager to 'Edit', 'Manage' or 'Delete' the group.
Clicking 'Edit' will allow the group name to be edited, as well as view the type of group, which cannot be changed once the group has been created.
Clicking 'Manage' will allow members to be added or removed from the group. You will also be able to view the list of abilities that are currently associated with the group.
Clicking 'Delete' will present you with an alert message confirming that you do indeed wish to delete the group.
Finally, if you wish to edit the default Person and Organization groups for when new users join your site, you can do so by clicking the cog in the top right-hand corner and using the slide-over to update the default groups.
