Group Settings Options and Features

When editing an existing group, there are a series of steps with various optional settings. This article is a compilation of all available settings.

TIP: Click on any underlined text throughout this article to read a more in-depth tutorial of that feature.

First, navigate to your Group Settings.

Use the tabs at the top of these pages to navigate to the step(s) you want to view.

Be sure to click the Save button at the bottom of any pages you make changes to.

There are 4 sections of your group settings:

Main Info
Timezone / Schedule / General Settings
Optional Features

Step 1 - Main Info

From this page, you can edit the following:

The name of the group

Step 2 - Timezone / Schedule / General Settings

Define your group settings including timezone, member posting, member approval and more.

From this page, you can add/edit/enable the following:

Choose your Timezone
The timezone selected here is what any scheduled posts and Events will adhere to.

Add Group Start/End date
If you want a Start Date to show on this group, toggle the switch given and selected your preferred date.
If a Start Date is enabled, you have the option to add an End Date as well.

This will not open/close that group on those specific dates, rather this will display those Start/End Dates at the top of that group.

From this page, you can add/edit/enable the following:

Use this button to create an itinerary for your group. Event dates are displayed in the group, and members will be sent an email reminder 5 minutes before the event's start time.
This can be helpful if you have things happening at certain times - such as a deadline, a time you're going live in that group, etc.

Group Topics
This allows you to create topics that you can assign your posts to, making it easy to browse a collection of posts you've made about that topic.

Add Link Buttons
Use this to create a weblink in the form of a clickable button that will be displayed in this group.

Custom Roles
This is helpful if you want to to use custom labels for the Admins, Moderators, and/or Members of this group. You would type in your preferred titles here.
