Promoting/Demoting a Group Member to Group Manager

Groups can have multiple managers. As a group manager, you can promote other group members or demote other managers depending on the level of permissions they need in order to provide for the group. 

  1. Go to the main group page and click on the Members tab
  2. Locate the member and find the arrow button to the right of the member's name
  3. The arrow will point up if the member is a regular group member and the arrow will point down if the user is a group manager
    1. To Promote a Group Member: Click the arrow button that is pointing up
    2.                                                         assignrole

    3. To Demote a Group Manager: Click the arrow button pointing down
    4.                                                         assignrole

    5. These changes in status will be automatically saved

Note: Giving another user manager access will give them the ability to promote/demote others, including you! Be sure to only give trusted users this access. You can alternatively create and assign roles which will give some extra management permissions. See Assigning Group Member Roles
