I am managing a group of users on a small Discourse forum and am hitting some usability issues, that make working with groups awkward. There are a bunch but I would like to address
- I can not see on the user card what groups the user is a member of:
Mark is a member of the “parents” group but I can not see it.
- The biggest killer problem I have is that I can not force all the members of my group to watch a category
Add a “visible on card” option for groups that forces the group name to be displayed on card.
Add an actions option for group management, allow admins only for now, to force all members of a group to “watch/track/watch new topics” any of the secure categories the group has access to.
For (2) it should spin up a modal that says
[ ] override user preference if selected even if user is tracking/muting/watching it should force the new level.
I find (2) a completely critical feature for small group management, when traffic is really low only way to get engagement is to force people into a much louder mode.
