The Groups addon allows you and your members (who have a specific role) to create groups.

A group can either be public or private.

  • Anyone can join public groups
  • Anyone can ask to join a private group, but they need to be approved by a group moderator

See more about moderating group members

Groups can be created by users with specific roles or by site admins

Groups can be edited by group admins and site admins

If the name ‘Group’ doesn’t fit your sites structure, eg. you want members to join organizations instead, then you can change the name

The groups a user is a member of, appear on their profile page under a new tab.

You can display all the groups in a directory using a shortcode
