I just learned, via our “Exclude Staff member from member stats” yearly roundup, that not all of our staff are in the
“Okay, no biggie”, I thought. “I’ll just update the group to pick up everyone with a company address.”
Except… that’s not available.
For other groups, I have a “Membership” tab under “Manage”
But not this one
I’d like to better understand this special group, but my searches here aren’t turning up much that’s helpful. Or is
this really all there is to know about it?
@staff group is one of the automatic ones so people can’t be added to it manually like the other groups. It’s essentially the
@moderators in one combined place (‘site staff’ rather than company employees).
So Dax’s post you linked is pretty much the long and short of it:
Yes, this is not the right way.
A staff user is an admin, a mod or both admin and mod.
To add a user to the staff group you have to promote the user as an admin or mod (or both).
After that the staff group will appears in the Automatic group for that user. You don’t have to do anything else.
If you do not want to grant admin or mod powers to the users you need to create a custom group (with a different name, “staff” is already taken). See here for details about custom group…
Maybe you want to create a Sonarsources_staff group and add everyone to that group and then add flair?
We’ve already got that (see screenshot above). But I can’t exclude
that group from the yearly review.
