Introduction to Groups

 You can create groups to meet people with your interests or in your region.  Groups can range from common interests to common RV ownership.

 Groups come equipped with their own discussion forum, RSS reader, text box and comment wall, and several privacy settings. 

As a group creator, you can choose the features and privacy settings you’d like to have for your group.

- To create a group, go to the Groups page, then click “Add.”

Next, fill in information about your group. Give your group a name and be sure to upload a group image that’s roughly square in size to avoid it getting distorted once saved. Fill out a description for your group, which members will see when looking for groups to join. If your group has another website, or a location, you can add it here!

On the right side of the page, choose which features your group will have.

Don’t forget to choose the privacy settings for your group! You can allow anyone to join the group, or moderate membership. If you choose to moderate membership, new members will have to apply to join and you’ll be able to review their request before they can join. You can allow members to invite other people to join and allow people to request membership, if you’d like. If you turn off both of these options, the group will be invite-only and you’ll be the only one who can send invites to join the group.

Finally, choose whether or not members of your group can send broadcast messages to the whole group.

Click “Add Group” and your group will be added.

After you’ve created a Group, you can edit most details about it it if you need to.

-Please note that the Group Creator cannot be changed after a group has been created.

From the Groups tab, click on the “My Groups” link to bring up the groups you are a member of. Click on the title link of any group in the list that you’ve created to bring up the Group Detail page. Clicking on the “Options” button, you’ll see that you can edit the group, manage your members or add a page to your group.

In addition to being able to add a page to your group, you can also edit or add a Text Box, Discussion Forum or RSS feed for the group. To edit these modules, just click the “Edit” button in the header or the “Add” and “Start” links beneath the header. To edit the title, description, privacy setting, who can join the group or other specifications of the group settings, just click on the “Options” drop-down menu and select “Edit Group”. Checking the box next to ”Allow members to send messages to the entire group” will allow group members to send broadcast messages to all members in the group.

Clicking on the “Manage Group Members” link from the Options drop-down menu will bring you to a page where you can promote members to, or demote members from, Group Administrator status, or suspend them altogether.

Send Messages to the Members of Your Group

The Group Creator controls whether or not a member can send a Broadcast Message to everyone in the group. If this feature is turned on, you will see a “Send Message to Group” link. Click on the link to open up a simple message box. You will only be able to enter text in this box. After you have composed your message, click “Send” and your fellow group mates will receive your message shortly.

If you do not see the “Send Message to Group” link, that means the Group Creator has not enabled this feature.

 A Group creator should invite members to join their group and be sure to add content to the new group. Also be sure to add a photo for your group.
