Group settings

Owners, Admins and Members

There can be only one owner of a group and they alone have the power to delete a group and add/remove an admin. Owners and admins will see the group admin settings within the group settings modal. Read more about managing your group

Group Settings

Group settings are located in the group modal, accessed by clicking the “Settings” button located below the group name. Within this modal, owners and admins can edit "Identity", “Permissions”, “Circle Settings”, “Calendar Settings” and “Ownership”.

Identity (admins)

If you are an admin, you can change the group name, group logo (appears in the group navigation list on the left-hand side of the app), home page image, and group purpose statement.

You can also select a group handle, which creates an email address that non app users can use to communicate with the group. For example, choosing the handle "joinable welcome", transforms into the email Using the email address will message your group in the Joinable app.

Only members of your group will be able to use this handle (anyone outside of the group will receive an error message). If a handle has already been taken by another group, Joinable will suggest a close alternative.

Permissions (admins)

These group settings include default member notifications and member permissions. Default member notifications enable you to determine how often your group will receive notifications of a new post/activity/request. Your group members will be able to change this if they choose in their own settings.

Admins can determine whether members are permitted to invite members, message circles and individuals, create events and send priority messages, all in the “Permissions” modal. People who have been designated as admins can action all of these items even if they are toggled off.

Notifications (everyone)

Notifications are posts or notices sent to your app, email or text message when new content is shared in the group. Depending on your group activity, you may always want real time notifications (default) or you can choose to reduce the notifications with daily digests or email only. For more information about notifications.

You may also choose to turn off notifications entirely, which means you would need to visit the app in order to see any new messages, events or updates. Notifications are sent to the least disruptive channel you have enabled:

<- Least | App | Email | SMS | Most ->

Ownership (Owner only)

If you either created a group or want to transfer ownership of it, there's an option in group admin settings labeled "Ownership", where you can either "Select a new owner" or "Delete my group". Please keep in mind that you can create as many admins as you'd like, and they will be able to do everything except delete the group or remove admin status.

If you transfer your ownership, the only way to get it back is for the new owner to transfer it back to you. Deleting a group is permanent!

Calendar settings

Here all members can opt to receive automatic invitations to your calendar when they create or join activities in Joinable.

Sharing Settings (everyone)

Members can choose exactly how much information they would like to share within each group and with your connections. You can toggle on/off email, phone number, home address, personal bio, interest tags, extra info, shared list items and whether a group admin can update your profile.
