Group allows a set of users to share ideas and organise events with each other around one specific subject. It can be seen as smaller communities within a bigger community. You are free to choose the subject that is suitable such as a hobby, a task or a expertise.
In each group you can find:
Stream. Activities in a group
Events. Events organised in a group
Topics. Topics created in a group
Members. Members of a group. If you are a group manager, you can also manage the members of the group.
About. Detailed information of a group. If you are a group manager, you can modify the information of a group.
Open and Closed Group
There are two types of groups you can create. There is an open group, which means people can join your group themselves. All the posts, events and topics in your open group are visible to other users in the platform. Non-group members can not create content in the group or comment on any of the posts, events or topics unless they join the open group.
A closed group makes it possible to create a group where members can only join by invitation from one of the group managers. The stream, events and topics created in the closed group are not visible to people that are not member of the group. A non-group member is only allowed to read the about page, the group manager and the members in the group.
