Groups Functionality

I created a few groups. How do I make it so that ONLY group members can invite others to the group and/or allow them to join? What's the configuration?

  • That is a bug that needs to be fixed. You should not logically invite someone to join a Group that you are not a part of.

    • In Facebook groups, members who have been validated by a moderator can invite others into the group. I'm trying to figure out how to set up closed groups in Una to allow the same. I'm trying to figure out how members can set up private/closed groups where users can see the group, but they can't join unless members already in the group invite them. If I am a member of a company, a school, a scrapbooking club, or a fraternal order and we create a group, I want members of the group to be able to invite other members (who they know are members of the fraternity, school, scrapbooking club, etc.) to join.

        • In UNA only group's Administrators can invite members to the group. In UNA 12 there will be additional roles in a groups: Moderators and Administrators, so both these roles will be able to invite other members to the group.

          • So if a user creates a group, they become the administrator? Correct?

              Correct.

              • Zachary S Robbins Jerome Mingo Alex T⚜️ - I've tested this - it seems that the ability to invite people to a group that you are not a member of is available to site administrators - but not standard profiles.

                • Agreed. I did test while logged in as administrator.
