How To Start a Group Discussions

How to communicate and create conversations with members of your group.

Updated over a week ago

A person would need to be a Group Admin or have the Full Write Discussions permission. ​ However, note that Full Write Discussions means a person can create discussions for all groups (unless limited). Group Admin would only allow it for that specific group they are an admin in.

Group discussions are a great way to communicate and create a conversation with members of your group.

How to Start a Discussion

To start a new discussion, go to the group, via “Groups” in the left-hand menu and choose the appropriate group, then click the Discussion tab and click Start New Discussion.

A window will populate where you will need to enter the subject and text of your message.

You can add images and files to your message by using the formatting toolbar at the top of the message field. However, attachments cannot be sent.

Once the message is sent a record is left in the Discussions tab as well as each member is sent an email of the message. When creating new group discussions, the user who created the discussion is included in the initial email as well.

Members can respond in the Discussions tab of the software where their responses are sent to every member's email inbox. As well, members can reply to the discussion email and their responses will be recorded.

The church branding appears at the top as well within the header area of the emails.

Below is an example email:

  1. The From Name shows the name of the group instead of the person who sent the message.

  2. The person who sent the message is shown at the top of the email body along with their message.

  3. Previous messages in the discussion are shown at the bottom (up to 10 ordered latest to earliest) to help provide context to the reply.

  4. A disclaimer in the footer indicates that replies to this email will be sent to all other group members. The number of which appears in parenthesis.
