Public groups and private groups

Think of Groups as classrooms for your digital university. You can adjust the level of confidentiality for each group. This article covers:

1 - The different group status options and subsequent visibility rules 

2 - How to set the status of a group

 

1 – Different group status options and subsequent visibility rules

There are 2 different statuses you can set for a group: public or private. The difference lies in the level of visibility of social interactions:

Option 1️⃣: you assign a program to 2 public groups

  •  Members of public groups will see each other and will be able to interact with members in the other group

Option 2️⃣: you assign a program to 2 private groups

  • Members of each private group will see other
  • However, they will not see nor be able to communicate with members in the other private group

Option 3️⃣: you assign a program to X public and X private group(s)

  • Members of public groups will see each other
  • Members of private groups will only be able to see members within the group. They will not see any other group. 

In short: members of a private group will only be able to see members of their group. 🙈

 

2 – How to set the status of a group

You designate the status during the group creation phase:

You can change this setting at any time via the group settings:
