Locations

Add a Location to your group so that members know where the group is meeting. You can create physical or virtual locations for your groups, and share them with other groups.

Create a Location

In the group Settings tab, go to the Location section, and choose one of these location types:

Create a Physical Location

After choosing Physical address as the location type, select Create a new location in the dropdown menu.

Add the name and address, and then make sure that the location on the map is correct.

If other groups or events might need this location, check the box next to Share.

Tip

To pin a more specific location instead of an address, click the map.

Members will always see the exact address and location, but to make the public-facing location less specific, set the Non-Member Display dropdown to Hidden, Approximate, or Exact location.

Click Save location to add the location to your group or event.

Link to a Video Conference

If you add a link to a video conference as your location, only logged in members of the group will be able to access the link.

After choosing Virtual (link) as your location type, paste the meeting link for your chosen video conference platform, and then click Save.

Some popular video conference providers are Zoom, Go-To-Meeting, and Google Hangouts.

Change Your Group's Location

To change your group's location, first choose a different location type, if necessary.

Update an Existing or Shared Location

Choose an existing location from the Location list.

Note

To update a shared location, select it from the Group Settings. Share locations cannot be edited from an event. When you update a shared location, it will be updated for any groups currently using the location.
