πŸͺ„Let’s dive into the new features Communities has to offer!

✨ Private Groups: An Exclusive Space

– Admins and owners can easily transition regular groups into private ones through group settings. A perfect avenue for focused collaboration or confidential discussions.

πŸ‘₯ Role Descriptions

Owner: The supreme authority. The creator of a group can assign users as admin or contributor. This role remains exclusive.

Admin: Assigned by the owner, admins can also onboard users as either admins or contributors.

Contributor: A valuable participant without administrative rights.

πŸ” Membership Dynamics

– Post-request, the button switches to ‘Requested‘.

– Once approved, an email confirmation containing magic links will be sent for quick access and easy group exploration.

β–Έ Membership Approvals:

– Potential members can express interest by requesting to join.

– Admins and owners handle these requests, with approvals sent out via email, complete with magic links.
