Discussion group (independent): Community members can be assigned as a moderator of a discussion group and thus, will have rights to e.g., add, invite, accept or block users from the group as well as add events or news connected to the discussion group. They encourage, activate and moderate the discussions as well as handle the build-up of content, future direction, membership, etc. per their own discretion. These groups are created upon request and after validation of purpose and added value.
Project discussion group: Separately, a project coordinator can automatically start and manage a discussion group connected to their Commission-funded project, exercise or training space and thus, will be able to add and amend moderators as well.
A User Guide is available for the technical steps in managing a group. For more info, see the slides of the past webinar, the FAQ for discussion groups, and the platform's Terms of Service.
