Managing a Group

Each Group Host has the power to manage that Group's settings, invite or approve new members, and customize the look and feel of the Group.

Here's a quick rundown of all the features available to a Group Host.

 

Invite and Manage Members

As the Group Host, you can invite members to your Group by navigating to Host Management > Invite to Group when you're inside your Group.

Use the option to invite by email or via @ mention (to invite someone who is already a member of the main Network) if you want to send a personalized note. Or, you can scroll down to access your own custom share link that will enable anyone with the link to join your Group — no matter if your Group is public, private, or secret.

If your Group is private, non-members can request to join. To manage the list of invite requests, just go to Host Management > Group Members and click on "Member Requests." From here, you choose to accept or ignore requests to join from individual members.

To see a list of all members in your Group, open up the nine dot navigation inside your Group and tap on Members. From there, you can see Top Members (a list of all members in your Group organized by most active), Members Near You, and New Members. 

To remove a member from your Group, you need to first make sure you are logged into your group on the web. From there, you can remove a member or change their role by rolling over the menu of options along the right when you are viewing the full list of members in your Group.

Welcome New Members to Your Group

You can instantly welcome all new members in your new Group by navigating to Host Management > Group Members inside your Group and selecting the button that says "Welcome new members."

From there, you will see a prompt to Welcome Members. Tap or click on this button, and every new member who joined since the last time you welcomed all new members will receive a short email or mobile notification from you.

Here's an example of what the email notification looks like when you welcome someone new to your Group:

Set Up a Featured Section or a Welcome Section in Your Group

As a Group Host you can set up a Featured Section or a Welcome Section that will display in the feed for your Group members to see.

The Welcome Section appears at the top of the feed for new members and can include an unlimited number of pinned posts, including polls, articles, questions, and events. 

The Featured Section appears in the feed for all Group members, and can also include an unlimited number of pinned posts, including polls, articles, questions, and events. 

Here is an example of how the Featured Section appears in a Group:

To add a post to your Group's Welcomed Section or Featured Section, you have to first log into your Group on the web. From there, you can use the prompts in the three dot menu next to each post or event in your Group to add that post to the section where you want it to be pinned.

To re-order the posts in each section, just navigate to Host Management > Group Content in your Group and then click on "Manage" for the section you want to edit.

From there, you can drag and drop posts into a specific order if you want to change how they are displayed for your members.content_manage.jpg

Notify All Group Members When Adding a New Post or Event

As a Group Host, you have the power to send a notification to all members when you're adding a new post, poll, question, article, or event in your Group.

Before you publish a new post, you'll see an option pop up that prompts you to notify all Group members about your new post. If you select to notify all members about your post, they will get a short email or mobile notification (depending on their individual settings) about your new post, with a prompt to come back and view it.

You can also send a quick note to all members of your Group by going to Host Management > Group Members and selecting the option to "Message all members."

 

Add a Co-Host to Your Group

If you want to add a Co-Host to help you manage your group, you need to first make sure you are logged into your group on the web. From there, you can change someone's role by rolling over the menu of options along the right when you are viewing the full list of members in your Group.

Customize the Design

Each Group can have its own custom logo, background photo, and theme color. The theme color appears in the top bar when you're viewing the Group on the web or in the mobile apps.

As the Group Host, you can customize the design by going to Host Management inside the Group and selecting Group Settings.

Group Analytics

Group analytics will be available in the coming months. We chose to treat these as two separate projects for speed and efficiency. Stay tuned!

As a Mighty Network Host, if you’ve upgraded to the Business Plan or Mighty Networks PRO you have the option to download a complete list of your members as an Excel file both at the Network level and within each Group in which you are a Host. The file also includes email addresses for each of your members, as well as information about their location, the member category they’ve selected, and their bio.
