Create A New Group

General Information
Groups is a feature that must be turned on for your Organization in the Admin Dashboard before you can begin using it.  Please check with your City Administrator if you do not see the Groups option in the Dashboard.

Creating A New Group
You can create a new group in a few easy steps:

  3. On the Add Group modal, select a Folder and a Program to associate the new Group with.  All Groups must be associated with a Program in your Org.  Currently, each Program can only be associated with a single Program: 
  4. Once you choose a Program, you can proceed with customizing the Group name, description and logo.  The system will initially auto-fill the name, description and logo based on the Program selected: 
  5. By default, all Groups are "Inactive" when they are first created.  You can change this to "Active" if the Group is ready for Learners to join.  This setting can be edited at any time: 
  6. When you are done customizing your Group, click the "Create Group" button: 
  7. You will see your new Group card on the Org Groups page.
