In Telligent Community 7.0 one of the forums previously provided by default, the reporting forum, has been replaced with the abuse service.
Groups define the areas of interest within your community. Some groups you will be able to join without requesting membership; others, however, you can join only by requesting membership or by being invited by the group owner.
The following table describes the group types and how you can join each type.
||How to join
||You are a member of Joinless groups by default. You do not have to request membership or be invited to join by the group owners. The functionality available to you depends upon your group permissions.
There are two types of public groups: open and closed.
- Public open - You can view the group and group information and can join by clicking the Join Group link. You do not have to request membership or await approval from the group owner.
- Public closed - You can view the group and group information but you must request membership to join the group by clicking the Join Group link. A dialog window appears in which you can send a join request to the group owner.
There are two types of private groups: listed and unlisted.
- Private unlisted - You cannot view the group name in the group list. You must be invited to join via email by the group owner.
We provide two groups by default for each community:
||Required group for all community sites, as it provides the over-arching parent group to which all other groups belong. You cannot delete this group.
Group that includes the Deleted Posts forum, where all forum posts that have been deleted are moved.
By default, the "admin" user is the group owner, so this is the only member who can see and access this group and its content. As an administrator, you might want to add any other administrators and/or moderators as members of this group as well so that deleted posts can be managed effectively.
Groups can include zero or more of each application type (Blogs, Wikis, Forums, or Media galleries), depending on the requirements for each group.
