How Do I Add Groups to My Mighty Network?

You have the ability to create Groups within your Mighty Network.

Groups function as sub-groups in your Mighty Network that have their own branding, their own members, and their own Topics, Articles, Polls and Questions, and Events. You'll find the Groups feature on The Community Plan and higher. 

How to Set Up Groups

Groups are disabled by default.

As a Host, enable Groups by going to Network Settings > Premium Features > Ways to Connect Members (roughly halfway down the page).

By default, only Hosts and Moderators may create Groups, but Members may be enabled to create Groups from the dropdown setting.

How to Create a Group

Click the "+" icon in the main Activity Feed > Group

How to Charge for a Group

Charge for access to a Group directly within your Mighty Network via our Plans feature. Learn more about Plans here. 

How to Promote Your Groups to Your Mighty Network

You may Feature Groups in your Mighty Network's Welcome Checklist that appears to new members and Featured Section that appears to returning members at the top of their Activity Feed.

Feature both Groups and Courses, and they'll appear to all members of your Mighty Network in their main Mighty Network Activity Feed.
