To launch your Groups, you must first enable the feature. To enable groups, follow these steps:
- Navigate to your Site Administration.
- Under Site Controls, click on Site Features
- Activate the Groups module by clicking its checkbox.
Next, you must go into the Site Preferences
area. Because you have enabled the group's module, you have two new options at your ready. At the bottom of the Groups tab, you'll see two important fields : Group TypeAdministration
and Group Descriptor Administration
. Filling out these areas is vital in more than one way. The attributes that you fill into these areas drive the group's module. The other reason is the group's module will not allow you to begin if you haven't completed these steps. On completion, click on save and you will be brought back out to the main administration page.
You will now see in the list a new administration link called Group Administration
. Your next steps can be many, but there are many help files to get you going. Please consult them when in doubt. If anything is confusing or you feel a specific point in missing, please contact us by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
