New group types
These groups allow you to share discussions and files with colleagues in your account.
These groups allow you to share content with your guests.
Note: These new groups are counted in the quota of active groups just as projects are.
New Actions menu
Possible actions are now grouped within a single Actions menu.
New manager role
In the settings for each group, you can designate a manager and his/her assistant (or partner). In intranet groups they are called intranet managers, and extranet managers in extranet groups, in project group, they are called Project managers.
The Directory > Groups application shows managers and allows you to filter managers. Quick access allows you to manage managers and active groups.
The Manage managers privilege can be configured using the Groups icon in the Admin panel.
New feature: Follow posts from the Group feed
You can add all group members as followers to a Group feed. When a new message is posted to a feed, members following the feed are automatically added as followers to the new post and receive it in their Inbox application.
You can manage the list of feed followers. Each user can decide to follow posts or not.
Note: The Activity application icon no longer exists in the Admin panel. Settings can now be found in each group settings.
Have a nice autumn!
The GroupCamp team
