    Hi there, If a topic is posted on one group page, is it possible to cross-link it to another group page? OR Can we embed a widget from one group page on another group page? Thanks! Emma

    Hi, I am combining two different community groups into one. Is it possible to move all the blog posts from one group to another?

    Hi, I have a permission circle called PA Group Admins. I want the members of that group to receive notifications when new member auto-join the group. The group is set to Private, so the PA Group Admins need to approve the new members. How do I set that up? Do I need to do that through a recipe? Thanks, ST

    Specifically, I want to allow a moderator to allow some members, but not all, access to a specific forum. How is that done?

    Hello John, On Eve there is really no way to allow a member who is just a forum moderator to control who can access the forum like that. In order to restrict access to a forum the way you describe you would need to have a Permission Group with access to the forum, and then add members who you want to participate in that forum to that Permission Group. The reason that this does not lend itself to your scenario is that the ability to add members to a Permission Group requires Super...

    Thanks for the reply, Jonmark. I guess the permissions architecture prevents this. It is a shame, at least for our usage, that a moderator can't give specific members access via a "moderator-generated" power group, like the admin can with a general power group.

    Good morning John, Yeah, the permission model is powerful, but that power requires that the ability to manage users in a group is necessarily restricted to super admins. I will go ahead and close this up, feel free to re-open if you have further questions related to this. Cheers, Jonmark

    Hi, Is it possible to assign to a forum moderator the ability to create a power group for that forum? If so, can you please outline the steps. If not, is there any other way to allow one user to create a power group for a specific forum?   Thanks.

    Useful beginners tips Rosemary. I can relate a little of my own experience here if you don't mind. ( notice the compliment and the almost apologetic way of stepping in Groupee was the first Bloggers site I had ever joined with confidence. It was the newness of the Social network on offer that gave me a feeling of belonging. Prior to that I could not "break the ice" anywhere else. I think blogging is easier than joining a forum. Unless the forum is very specific in it's nature. In a blog you...

    In your eve control panel, go to Eve>>Members>>Member Management. Search for the member(s) that you wish to add to the group. Check the box next to each member you wish to add. Under "Desired Action", select "Add to Power Group". A menu will appear with a list of available power groups. Choose the appropriate group, and then click the "Submit" button. Note that you can also add a member to a group via their Personal Zone page. Look for the Groups link on the left.

    Even if a particular member is part of a group with certain permissions, you can override any permissions for that member. Simply go to that member's Personal Zone page (search for the member in the control panel first if necessary to access the member's Personal Zone page). On the member's Personal Zone navigation bar, go to Permissions. Navigate to the specific permission you wish to override in the Permission Browser. If the permission is granted, a check mark will appear next to it. If...

    Hi there, is it possible to do a news flash (e.g. a pop-up survey) only within a group? Thanks, Emma

    We are planning to remove an old private forum and create a private group instead. Is it possible to move topics posted in the old forum into the new group space? Or to cross link those topics to the group space? Thanks, Emma

    Hi there, I'm wondering what the difference is between a public group and a private group. There's a group on our site that has gone from private to public, however outside members still cannot see content without going through moderator approval. Do public groups still require moderator approval? And will people not in the group be blocked from seeing any content on the homepage until they join that group? Thanks! Heather

    This gave me a lot to think about - thanks Rosemary! My problem is that I am looking for something specific.... farmers and gardeners that are from Vermont. But, figuring that any exposure is good exposure, I created a Squidoo lense that's a near copy of a blog post I made as well as created a new board on Pinterest (I love Pinterest anyway so this comes easy). I like to troll the VT Craigslist for new members (Farm and Garden section) and have also posted to the online bulletin board of...

    Hi, Emma: We don't have the ability to send a News Flash to just a group, at this time. You could notify them about the survey, however, via the group control panel, under Manage Members. You'd use the "Notify Member(s)" option in the dropdown at the bottom of that page. They'd get notified via their chosen method for instant notifications: email, alert, or both. Lori

    Hi Emma- There is no way to move (or even crosslink) content from a main site into a group currently. If this is super critical, we can provide a quote for you to have our developers do this for you manually, however. If you want a quote for that, please let us know. Thanks!

    I use groups in my choir community so that smaller working groups (committees) have a place to work that is apart from the main community. These little dedicated areas allow Production, Promotion, and Fundraising committees to do their work and keep their documents in a separate place, so they can maintain focus without the distraction of the main community activity. Love the blog photo. Best ever!

    We love groups and the key to making them work is to really think about how to "architect" the information flow. You want the group to contain the information valuable to the participants, but want to be sure you're not managing duplicate content within the groups; which makes it hard to manage. Let me elaborate: Our groups care for separate partner organizations, all of which have different focuses, products and concerns. The assigned admin of the group keeps their section updated with the...

    The principles of when and how to use "group" is a good guide to reflect, so thanks. I'm not a community manager, simply a moderator type, with ideas and attempts to develop communities of a few sorts, help inspire use. It seems to me need to have an actual project and a small group, to utilize application in order to be able to bridge to any "organizational" level engagement. again, thanks, good to hear others sharing their ideas

    Thanks for sharing your insights Lori, Erin, and Bill! Erin I consider you the "groups sensei." It would be cool to do a focused case study on how you're doing that (And Lori, I definitely had you in mind when I picked that photo, hehe.)

    Hi, ST: Yes, you can set up a recipe to Moderate New Members. Your actions would be to Moderate New Members (with the condition of joining that group), and then just add an additional action to send a notification to specific permission circles. You may already have a recipe to moderate new members, in which case you can just add the action to notify. Make sense? Lori

    Hi, ST: Do your Group Admins have the Manage Members permission? If so, they should see the option to get notifications for new registrations in their notification settings by default (in the Administrative Events section). That setting will be enabled by default.

    Hi, Heather: In general, a public group is open to all community members, and a private group is limited to group members. Both of these types would be listed in the group directory. It's possible that you might have a moderation Recipe that is still limiting access to the group, or that the content is restricted in some other way. If you want to tell me which group you are referring to, I can take a look and see what the issue might be. Lori
