My forum is members of an organization, and they fall into classes by year. So there’s a
Class Of 2014/2015,
Class Of 2013/2014, etc. Each member gets access to the forum in general, but I’m also making a private category for each class (as sub-categories of a parent category called something like
Classes By Year).
I see how to make a sub-category private by making a group for each class, and making the sub-category visible only to that group. But when people join the forum, I’m not sure how to assign them to the group for their class year. I have a master list of users, but I’d like to avoid the admin task of manually making all of these assignments.
Can anyone recommend an efficient way for users to request their own access, or at least a good method of bulk group assignment, so I can slot people into groups without having to do it one at a time? Or is there a better way to organize these private groups in the first place?
