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...

Re: How do I add a member to a group?

Lori ·
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.

Re: How do I override a permission granted to a member via a group?

Lori ·
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...

Re: Calendar

Ted O'Neill ·
Hi Ron- Just to clarify your request... you want the ability to filter the calendar in various ways (by location, by member)? I'm not sure I understand the "by member" scenario, since events are usually intended for a group. Can you clarify that one? Thanks!

Re: Calendar

Ron M Pitters ·
Hi Ted Yes, a way for the users to be able to focus their events at intended audiences or focus groups or members. By default a calendar event is posted to all users to view - which is very useful, however it would be useful to be able to publish events for a more select audience by users such as in the 'Dialogs' function where participants can be added to a dialog. This functionality would make calendar events much manageable. Examples: 1. I am organizing a fund-raiser on January 1st, 2012...

Re: Calendar

Ted O'Neill ·
Thanks Ron... so would you expect your "play group" event to be accessible by anyone on the site, however? It sounds more like you want a more group-focused calendar, whereby specific groups in your site have their own calendars.

Re: Calendar

Ron M Pitters ·
Thanks Ted The 'play-group' would only be accessible to those select users and not to the complete user group. So my calendar 'view' would show those events for 'all' users and those events whereby I have been selected. Again thanks

Okay, so to clarify then you are a looking for support for groups, because that is the only really way to accomplish what you are asking.

Re: Calendar

Ron M Pitters ·
Correct. Assume that 'groups' is a selection of users. Thanks

Re: Calendar

Ted O'Neill ·
Hi Ron- Well, depends on how you define that. Typically a group is a collection of people that people voluntarily join. I think you have more in mind more of our dialog model whereby you populate your "groups" yourself and the "group" is nothing more than a list of people that is not really sustained.

Re: Calendar

Ron M Pitters ·
Hi Ted You are correct. I am thinking of your dialog model. I am not sure how a group can be 'built' outside of taking into account a total community. I suppose one could 'ring-fence' users who are following a topic, etc. but that wouldn't give the focus of being able to select users. On another topic - all users are capable of adding to an 'event' - please correct me if I am wrong - there is no way of setting up events to be moderated (will not be posted until approved) as is set up with...

Re: Calendar

Ted O'Neill ·
Hi Ron- What do you mean by "adding to an event"? You mean post comments to the event? In any event, both the events themselves and comments to events can indeed be moderated. I've taken a screenshot showing just such a moderation rule below.

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

Re: Power group

Jonmark Weber ·
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...

Re: Power group

John2 ·
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.

Re: Power group

Jonmark Weber ·
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

Re: Quick Tip: The Pros and Cons of Using Community Groups

Lori ·
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!

Re: Quick Tip: The Pros and Cons of Using Community Groups

Erin Wright ·
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

Re: Set notifications on for a permission circle - for new group members

Lori ·
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.

Re: what is the difference between group settings?

Okay I've just done a test. As a member I click "join this group" and I get access right away to all the content. However, the moderator still receives a request for someone to join the group. Is there a way to take out that step so the moderator receives no notification because the person is automatically in the group? Thanks!

Hi Emma- Yes, indeed! What you want to do is click on the "Configure Home Page" link in the right column on your group's home page: You'll then be able to edit which "content blocks" appear in that left column. You could use the stock "Clips" content block if you want to display all clips (or all clips in a particular clip set) and be done... ... but if you want to display the actual clip sets only (just the set names), then you'll need to work a little harder, since we do not have a "list...

Hi Emma- Yeah, that is what I was talking about. What you are seeing is a stock background image on each set box. If the sets contained images, then an image from the set would appear as the background instead. You might be able to replicate the look somewhat, if all you care about it displaying the same background image, but it would require a good bit of CSS and honestly all the CSS in the world may not make it look quite the same. If you have some CSS gurus at your company, though, you...

Re: Create a permission circle within a group based on email domain

Brian Lenz ·
Hi ST, That's an interesting scenario On many sites, groups are created by end users, and as such, group admins are not given access to any private group member profile information (such as email address). This is why you don't see a way to search for members within a group by email address. You're correct that you can only search for members by email address on the main site, but there is no way to add those members to a permission circle within a group from the main site. So,...

Re: Create a permission circle within a group based on email domain

ST ·
Hi Brian, Thanks. At least I didn't miss something obvious. It involves 217+ members right now. After that, we can manage it manually as new members are added to the group. We approve new members manually now assign them to permission circles. Going forward it won't be too onerous. I might look to see if we can do it with a Recipe. I can make this a project to do over a late-night movie (add members to the permission circle manually). Downside: popcorn on the keyboard. ST
