Manage Group Settings

Created on:
Updated on:

Basic information, location, tags, and any settings which belong to a group and can be changed from the Group Settings.

Go to the Settings tab on any group to make changes.

Basic Information

When you add a group the first time, you enter the name and choose the group type. In addition, you can add the meeting schedule and the image for the group.

  1. Edit the name, select a different group type, or enter the meeting schedule. The schedule is a reference point for people to view; it does not add any event to the calendar.
  2. Upload or remove the image for the group, which shows on every group page.
  3. Archive or delete a group at any time. Archiving saves all the information and removes it from the active groups view; deleting removes all information about the group.

We apply cropping to an uploaded image to fit a 16:9 aspect ratio, 720x405 pixels. 

Location

Let people know where where the group typically meets by adding a location.

  1. Choose from other locations listed in other groups or create a new location.
  2. Select Member or Non-Member to view what the map will look like.
  3. Edit the location or delete it entirely.

Members & Properties

Enter when or if enrollment closes, choose what members can see, and check any event information.

Member and Properties
  1. Open signups are great for when you want anyone to join the group without approval.
  2. Choose to close enrollment depending on a factor that works for your group.
  3. If you don't necessarily want the group to close after a certain number of people, but you may need to make other arrangements after a certain number, choose to be notified after a certain number of people.
  4. Select what logged-in group members can see on your group page.
  5. Check if attendance should be taken for the events.
  6. To help people find groups when filtering, add appropriate tags to the group.

Group Page Settings

Each group has different information to show on the group page and how to display it. Use the Group Page Settings to make changes to what is shown on the group page.

Group Page
  1. Choose the group status: allow the group to be seen by making it public or private, and choose if it's available for people to join by making it open or closed.
  2. If people have questions about this group, they can reach out to the person listed. This person doesn't necessarily need to be the group leader; the information listed could be the church's information.
  3. Allow people to view group events and subscribe to the calendar by checking the box.
  4. The description should give people a sense of what the group is about. Use the editing tools to make important text stand out.
  5. Some groups may want to show who's in the group and how to contact those people; other groups, however, may want their information to stay private. Select what visitors can see when viewing the group page.
