There are two ways to automatically close a group. Both can be accomplished at the group type level, using group defaults. Or it can be set for a single group, using a group setting. Either way, it looks like this:

  1. Date trigger: Close the group on a certain date.
  2. Membership trigger: Close the group at a certain number of members. Remember that group leaders are also members and that both leaders and administrators can still add new members to this group. Closing the group just disables the "Join this group" button as shown above.
