Organic Groups Settings
In this video we will decide whether or not group managers should have all permissions within their groups. This can be useful when users are creating groups on your site, but you don't want them to have full permissions in the groups they create.
- Go to Configuration > Organic groups settings
Here we just have a simple check box.
- If the box is checked, the group manager will have all permissions, regardless of what roles they have.
- If the box is unchecked, group managers will only have the permissions associated with the roles they have. Thus being equal to any other member of the group.
The only reason I can think that you would want to do this is if you are creating all of the groups on the site, but assigning other users as the “author”. If you do this, then you can give that person a role within the group that has more limited permissions.
