I’ve read dozens of topics about groups, categories, sub-categories, etc. Somewhere along the way I thought I remembered seeing that you can add specific members to be able to access a document (kind of like gDoc/Google Document permissions) But I can’t find that thread! Maybe it was talking about something else. But I feel like I saw a screenshot of a field where you could add specified individuals to a topic or something.
Per the title of this topic, I want to be able to have a private topic within a public category, where only individuals who have been granted access, could see the private topic.
Does this feature/functionality exist? Is there a better way to approach what I would like to do?
Let me add a little color to my request…
I want to have a public category for Accountability where everyone can post new topics. This would be a place where people can support each other in starting and keeping their goals…
I start a topic and titled… “Master the lob shot” and in the description I write: “Over the course of the next 4 weeks I’m going to work on mastering the lob shot. I’ve notice that’s a part of my game where I’m weak. I’m going to practice X every day, and also work on Y and Z for the last two weeks… for 30 mins each day…” (you get the point)
︎ this topic would naturally be PUBLIC, in the Accountability category
But I also have some Pros/Coaches/Instructors that I work with. They will be offering clinics to select groups of users. I want them to be able to work in a private setting with just the cohort of players who booked for a respective clinic. I would like this to be a private topic, within the Accountability category, but only allow a specific list of individuals to see and access this topic. They could go into the other public topics that others are posting but I only want those who have been invited to this private clinic to be able to view/access the topic.
We will have hundreds of instructors/coaches/pros who run these types of clinics. These groups of members who attend a clinic are constantly changing. Each new clinic usually has a completely new cohort of players, so I don’t want to create thousands of groups or subcategories to manage these members. If we could just have a single, private topic that we invite individuals to join, follow, and participate in, this would be ideal.
This way nobody else join the private discussion that these members have paid for. And the members could subscribe to this particular thread to get immediate notifications… and it would really keep them engaged with their group.
Any thoughts on a better approach to what I’m trying to do here?
Or maybe the feature exists where I can do exactly what I’m imagining here, and I just need someone to point me in the right direction.
