Membership roles

Part [part not set] of 14 in the series About LISN

  1. When a user joins a group, he or she has the role of group member.
    1. In a public group, group members are able to submit content to other parts of the group (for instance, group members can upload documents). To join a group, go the group page and click on “Join Group” button. Being a member of a group means having the group’s activity aggregated in your My Profile > Activity > Groups activity stream.
    2. In a private group or a hidden group, members have all the same privileges as members in a public group. Additionally, being a member of a private group means that you get to see who else is a member of the group, and that you’re able to send invites to other users.
  2. Group Moderators: When a group member is promoted to be a group moderator , it means that the member receives the following additional abilities:
    1. Edit and delete Calendar and Documents tabs
  3. Group Administrators: Administrators have total control over the contents and settings of a group. That includes all the abilities of moderators, as well as the ability to:
    1. Change group-wide settings (Admin > Settings). For instance, administrators can change group status from public to private, and toggle on or off various other group functionality provided by plugins
    2. Change the group avatar (Admin > Group Avatar)
    3. Manage group members (Admin > Manage Members). More specifically, only group administrators have the power to promote members to moderators, or to ban individual users from the group
    4. Delete the group (Admin > Delete)

    The individual who creates the group is automatically the group’s first administrator. As a result, each group must have at least one administrator, though the first admin can choose to appoint others.

    NOTE: Roles for groups are different to LISN membership roles, which are assigned by the webmaster. A Subscriber is however the same as a Member for both LISN membership and Group Membership. LISN membership roles are explained here:
