Group Auto Subscriptions for elgg

In this article I will give you a step-by-step guideo on how to configure group auto subscriptions for users in elggOverview

Schools, companies and small organizations use the groups plugin to communicate with each other. One of the limitations that elgg managers have is that either the user has to request to join a group or it has to be added manually, which takes time from group owners or elgg managers. The auto subscriptions plugin lets managers configure which groups a user will be added upon registration, saving time and resources.

Getting Started

1. Download the Autosubscribegroup community plugin for elgg

2. Sign into your elgg network with an Administrator Account, and open the Admin Dashboard.

3. Go to menu “Configure -> Plugins“, find the “Autosubscribegroup” plugin and activate it:
