Groups are a way you can join together with specific members of the Brigade Leader Community. That’s why they are so cool! A group is a private area of the website that you can create that only those invited can access. Visibility of the group is up to you as well. For instance, this is a great way to create a space just for the leaders in your unit, or maybe you are organizing a regional event and you want a place to communicate and collaborate with other people helping with the event. Just create a group, name it appropriately, and share that group with the people you want to join. An email with a link will be sent to them. If they are not yet members they will, of course, need to subscribe so that they can access the site.
Head over to the “Groups” area of Brigade Leader. This can be find on the persistent panel found on the left of our site.
All groups are presented in one director which can be shown through a variety of filters. You can also search for a specific group. Once you find the group you’re looking for you can request membership. Most groups will require moderator approval before you become an official member.
Not a problem! You can create your own group. Go to the Groups area and click “Create a Group” at the top. Follow the on screen instructions to complete the setup process. Pay special attention the settings to ensure that your group functions the way you need.
If you’ve been invited to a group but haven’t accepted simply click on the dropdown profile menu from the title bar and then go to “Groups.” From here you can go to “Invitations.”
These are areas in which Brigade leaders can ask questions, share ideas, and encourage one another. When a Forum is used well it is a very powerful tool to equip Brigade Leaders for service.
If you are like me, you often have questions or want to share ideas that have worked well … or not worked well.
This is the place to do it!
