As the manager of a group, you can decide which rights the members in your group have. Only group managers are able to change the settings and content (e.g. ‘About this group’) of the group. Ordinary group members can only use the facilities of the group, for example, the timeline, the chat, and the agenda.
By creating a group, you automatically become the group manager. This does not have to stay this way: it is possible to have multiple group managers. When there are one or more extra managers appointed, then you can change yourself to an ordinary group member.
Appointing someone as a group member or group manager
If you want to appoint someone as a group manager, or if you to change a group manager into an ordinary member, take the following steps:
- Click on Groups in the navigation balk.
- Then, click on the group in which you want to change someone’s rights.
You now arrive on the page of the concerning group.
- Click on Group Members.
- Then, hover over the name and click on the edit icon in the right corner.
Below the name, a field where you change the roles (e.g. ‘Head Communications’ or ‘Confidant’) and the rights (member or group manager) pops up.
- Fill in the correct rights and click on Save.
You have correctly changed the rights of the concerning person. This is immediately visible for all the group members in the tab Group Member. It is possible to appoint as many group managers as you wish. The rights of a member can always be adjusted or deleted.
Below is a short video where we go through the steps.
It is recommended to appoint a minimum of two group managers. This is useful, for example, if one of the managers is on vacation: then it is still possible for the other manager to update the group information.
