The Group - Manage abuse permission has been added in Telligent Community 7.0 as part of the Abuse social service.
In release 7.1, Telligent added the capabilities to revert group role permissions back to the defaults, restoring permission inheritance from the site.
The Permissions page is accessible through the group edit functionality. The page allows you to control the group user roles and assign privileges to the roles.
You can modify the default permissions for the default roles; but we recommend that instead of changing the default permissions, you customize a user role with the permissions you want for that role.
A group member's membership type can determine his/her permissions within the scope of that group. For example, a group member having the Registered User role will inherit all of the permissions assigned as below to any Registered user. If this member is given the group membership type of manager or owner, his/her permissions within the scope of the group increase to that level.
The applications you add to the group will use the permissions you assign at the group level. If you modify permissions at the group level, the modified permissions will not take effect in any existing group applications; however, any applications you add after modifying the group-level permission will inherit the modified permissions.
