I'm a Group Admin. How do I manage my Group?

Question

I'm a Group Admin.  How do I manage my Group?

Answer

 

If you're a Group Creator or Admin, there are plenty of tools at your disposal for Managing your Group. You can update Group information, block users, add other Members as Admins, police the posts in your Forum, and more.

 

To begin Managing your Group:

  • Hover your mouse over More in the top navigation bar then click Groups. Next click My Groups. 

  • Click on a Group in which you have Admin privileges

  • On the Group page, click the “Manage Group” link in the top right corner

Manage Group links

 

On the Manage Group page you'll see a bunch of links to help you manage your Group efficiently. These tabs include: Group PhotoBasic InfoManage MembersJoin Requests (only visible if your Group is private),Reported Posts and Blocked Users.

 

To Change or Edit your Group Photo:

  • Click the Group Photo link (Note: This can also be accessed by clicking the “Edit Group Photo” action on the main Group page)

  • Add a photo from one of the three upload options - my computer, image URL or Photo gallery

  • (Optional) Use the marquee tool to select a thumbnail area, then click the “Save Thumbnail” button

  • Click the “Save” button to update your Group Photo

Edit Group Photo

To Edit your Group Information:

  • Click the “Basic Info” link (Note: This can also be accessed by clicking the “Edit Group Info” action on the main Group page)

  • Update any necessary info (Group Name, Access, Description, Category, Language, Intended For)

  • Click the “Save” button to update your Group Information

Group Basic Info

To Manage Group Members:

  • Click the “Manage Members” link (Note: This can also be accessed by clicking the “Edit Members” action on the main Group page)

  • If necessary, use the Filters (Admin, #, ABC's) and navigation links to find the Member(s) you wish to manage

  • Move your mouse cursor over the specific Member's profile thumbnail to display the '+/- 1' and 'x' icons

  • If you wish to block a member, click the 'x' icon to add them to your Group's Blocked Users list. If you wish to promote a member to Admin status, click the '+1' icon. If you're the Group Creator, you can also demote an Admin back to Normal user status by clicking the '-1' icon. (Note: Admin Members will have a green background on their photo thumbnails.)  These actions are saved instantly, so there is no need for a “Save” button on this page

Manage Group Members

 

To Respond to Group Join Requests:

  • Click the “Join Requests” link [Note: If there is a number (e.g. “3”) on your “Manage Group” tab, this indicates that your Group has pending Join Requests.  This will only appear if your Group is private. ]

  • Use the “Accept” or “Reject” buttons to respond to individual Join Requests. If you wish to Accept multiple Join Requests at once, use the single checkboxes on the left or the “check/clear all” checkbox above the Requests to select the specific Requests, then click the “Accept Checked” button

  • You can also use the “Send Message” link in any Join Request to communicate with a user who is requesting to join your Group, unless they have a private profile

Group Join Requests

 

To View a list of Reported Posts:

  • Click the “Reported Posts” link

  • View any Reported Post. You can also use the Topic link below the post's content to view the topic where this post appears

  • Use the “Approve” or “Delete” buttons to take action on the post. You can also use the “Send Message” link to communicate with the user, unless they have a private profile. If you wish to block them, click the “Block User” link to add them to the Group Blocked Users list. (Note: The “Block User” link will not appear for users who have already been added to the Group Blocked Users list.) After blocking a user, you will also have the option of deleting ALL of their Forum posts from your Group in the green dialogue box that appears below the action buttons. Admins can also delete posts, block users and delete all of a user's posts by hovering over a user's post on any Forum Topic page and using the corresponding links that appear

Group Reported Posts

 

To View your Group's Blocked Users list:

  • Click the “Blocked Users” link

  • Below each user's photo, you can either click the “Unblock User” link to remove them from the Blocked Users list or click the “Delete All Posts” link to remove ALL of their posts from your Group's Forum

I created the group Naughty_Cebu a couple of months ago. We were careful to be respectful to members and tried to maintain a balanced discussion (you can review the posts to verify what I'm saying). Then came the Tagged downtime a few weeks back. When Tagged groups came back online again, moderator privileges had been wrested from me and now in the hands of a certain "Louis W, 51, from Toronto, Canada." I no longer have the "Manage Group" tab. What happened? Is this a result of a bug in the newly upgraded Tagged groups service? How was my moderatorship of this group taken away from me and put in the hands of somebody else? Is Louis W working for Tagged and you put him there to "baby-sit" this e-group? Was there a report of wrong-doing that prompted you to do this - that is, if this transfer of moderatorship was intentional from Tagged. I'd appreciate an answer. I also hope that this problem is corrected soon. Thank you very much.

Hi,

 

I'm an admin in a group, but I'm not able to remove members from the group. The admins can only block the members. How can we admin get acces to the part where we can remove members. Our creator left the group, so we cannot ask him to remove members.

 

Our group "one world chapter two" has more then 700 members and just a handfull write there. So we admins want to get our members down, so we know more about the folks who do write there.

 

Hope you can help me with this issue?!

 

Thanks, Quierida

After a year tagged has still not fixed the issue of not being able to admin groups...makes you wonder if they are even working on the issue..if you put in a service order about it all you get isthey are working on the problem and they close your ticket......when I complained about them closing My ticket thier soultion was to leave the last one open with the same message...no updates in months

by -MikeS- on ‎12-09-2012 07:34 AM

Im also not sure what help The Community is when tagged fails to respond to the comments here

I would like to know exactly what rights I have in the boardroom of a group I created.  There are people I would like to add as admins, but my present admins give me a lot of trouble on this.  My boardroom is in caos from all the dissent in there, and I want to know what I can do about it?

by judy111111 on ‎10-21-2013 07:57 AM

I am an adminstrator of a group called Providence http://www.tagged.com/eyeofprovidence

 

the original creator left the group, and instead of giving the next admin the creator post it gave admin and creator rights to a normal member.

 

Can this be sorted that I am the creator of the group please, as I would not like the group in any jeapody.
