  • Accessing Google Docs from your Groupsite

    Posted by SUSAN / on 02/03/2016 / 0 Comments

    Categories: Managers' Tip, How To

    Google docs can be incorporated into your Groupsite by using a shareable link to the doc.  Here are two options for sharing the Google doc link with your group's members.

    1.  Use a Shared Link module to post links to the Google docs. You can share up to 15 links in one module. If the Google doc link in the module renders a blank page and not the document text, review the Google "Share" settings on the document. You may have to make adjustments to the Share settings so that your Groupsite members can view the document.

    2.  Add a page ..

  • "Profile Completeness Meter" Feature Enhancement

    Posted by Diana / on 02/16/2012 / 2 Comments

    Categories: Managers' Tip, How To, Announcements

    The Profile Completeness Meter can now be disabled by Groupsite Managers. This functionality will be available to all Groupsite Managers on our platform.  This functionality can be accessed from the MANAGER > Group Settings > Profile Settings area of all Groupsites.  Be sure to click "Save" if you disable/re-enable this setting.

    As a Groupsite manager, if you remove the Profile Completeness Meter, you will be removing the meter for your entire Groupsite. The Profile Completeness Meter is either "on" or "off" for all members in a Groupsite. The Profile Completeness Meter can be re-enabled at any time.

  • Accidentally Denied Membership Requests

    Denied Membership Requests

    If your Groupsite's membership settings are "By approved request or invitation," non-members can request to join your Groupsite, and then a Manager can review, approve or deny the request.

    Occasionally, a manager will accidentally deny a membership request and want to recover it. Groupsites do not store membership requests. If you accidentally deny a membership request to your Groupsite, the action cannot be reversed and the request cannot be recovered.

    To afford more options, you may want to consider exporting a list of your pending membership requests prior to processing them.

  • Automatic Reminder Invitations

    Posted by Celeste / on 01/18/2011 / 3 Comments

    Categories: Groupsite Success Stories, Managers' Tip, User's Tip, Feature Spotlight, How To, Misc., Announcements

    As you may have noticed, on Friday, January 14, 2011, we fixed an outstanding bug with the automatic invitation reminders. "If you do not respond to an invitation, you will receive up to 10 invitation reminders."  The frequency is defaulted to twice a week.

    Since this automatic reminder wasn't working for so long, it caught some people by surprise:(   What you are now seeing on the pending members page is the automatic reminder invitations (which were broken, now restored).  Unfortunately, we don't show a distinction between originally invited and last sent (auto reminded).

    The fix triggered a domino effect because of ..
