How to enable member approval, and approve any new member requests

Without Member Approval turned on, anyone with your group's link or code will be able to join that group. If you want to restrict who has access, enabling this feature requires your approval for any new members requesting to join that group.

Enable the Member Approval feature

Navigate to your Group Settings

From your SocialGlow dashboard, click Groups.

Locate the name of the group you're wanting to add member approval to, and click the Group Settings icon to the far right.

Select the Step 2 tab at the top of the page.

Under the Member Settings section, toggle on the switch for Member Approval.

Click the Save button at the bottom of this page to save your changes.

Anyone who attempts to join that group will receive a notice that their request is pending. They'll receive an email notification if approved.

Approve Member Requests

This can be done from both the website and mobile app views of the group.

Navigate to that group.

Click the Member Pending alert, in the corner of that group's cover photo.

A list of all pending requests will be shown here. You can choose from the following options:
Decline with Feedback

Any members approved from here with now have access to that group, and will receive an email notification of that approval.
