Creating Forums and Groups

Every ConneXions Workshop has corresponding group that includes all participants and staff and has an associated forum. The name of the forum will be the name of the Tribe as chosen by the participants. This page documents the process of creating groups and forums and assigning event participants to the group / forum.

Step 1: Create a Group

In the dashboard, click on Groups and then Add New. Provide a group name and description and click on “Create Group and Continue”. Before the event, use the form CX-yyyy-mm-dd Under Privacy Options, select “This is a private group” Under Group Invitations, select “Group admins and mods only” Under Email Subscription Defaults, select “All Email” then click on “Next Step” Under Create Group Forum, check the box ” Yes. I want this group to have a forum” then click on “Next Step” Skip the Group Photo (I could not get this working, so I abandoned it). Skip the Cover Image (same problem). Click on Finish.

Step 2: Add Group members

I am still searching for how to do this step manually or (even better) automatically.

Step 3: Sending Messages to Group Members
