Help: Adding a Group

A group page is for the more static information of any group in the church. It must only be used for groups, and not for events (although a group behind a regular event could have a group page) nor for collections of groups.

On a group page you can add a photo of the group, explain what the group does, appeal for new members, add details of the individual members and add photos. Once created, you can also connect events and event reviews to the page.

To create a group page, please follow the simple steps below.

Community Tab

Once logged into the website, click on the tab "Community".

Community Sub Menu

On the sub-menu in the community section, click on the link at the bottom labled "Add Group" (if you don't see this link, then you probably still need to login).

Adding a Group Name

You will now see a form which you can fill in to create a page for the group. Start by entering the name of the group in the box labelled "Group Name".

Selecting a Category

Then select the category the group should appear in from the dropdown box.

Choose Image

Then upload a group image. To do this, click the "Browse" button to bring up the file explorer. Select your image in the dialog box (by double clicking, or clicking once and then clicking on "open") and then click the "Upload" button. Give it a moment and you will see a thumbnail of the photo you have uploaded.

Upload Button

Then click the "Upload" button.

Adding body text for group

Now enter the information about the group into the "Body" section.

[Optional] If you want to add another team member, just click the "Add another item" button and repeat the last step. You can do this as many times as you require.

Add group photo

[Optional] You can also add a photo or many photos for the group. Try to pick out the best ones if you have lots and make sure you have the correct permissions to use them if you didn't take the photos yourself. In the section labelled "Group Images", click the "Browse" button to bring up the file explorer. Select your image in the dialog box (by double clicking, or clicking once and then clicking on "open") and then click the "Upload" button. Give it a moment and you will see a thumbnail of the photo you have uploaded.

[Optional] If you want other members of your group to be able to edit the group page, you can add them here. You'll need to know their username. Just type in their name, and click on the user when they appear in the dropdown.

Add workflow comment

[Optional] Before your event review is published, it will need to be approved. If there's any message you want to put with your event submission, add it in the "Workflow comment" section. This will only be seen by the administrator.

Finally, click the "Save" button at the bottom to submit your event review. It will be published shortly.
