I am running a private forum for educational purpose, it is exclusively for the students enrolled with us.
In the forum there are many private categories which are allowed to students based on their subject of enrollment. For example, students enrolled in maths get access to the maths category only, not science category. Currently we have private groups for each private category, and we approve membership requests manually to groups to grant them access to a primary category.
I would like to automate this. The student should be able join any one private group if they have been assigned a certain badge. I have already created the badge. How do I put restriction on the number of custom groups that the user can join?
I agree with @thoka, if you want to assign a badge manually in order to grant access to a group, then an invitation can be as quick.
If you need/want a badge associated with each group, then you could create new badges SQL query to give badges to users depending on the groups they belong to: Create Triggered Custom Badge Queries
With this combination, you’ll be able to put students in groups and have them have a badge, all of this without having to create a custom plugin.
As an alternative, as @Heliosurge suggested, you could maybe use the Automation official plugin to set users in a group depending on a custom field value. There’s a script for this:
Hey, I also wanted to implement the same. for eg- we have two custom badges and two private group i.e., badge A, badge B, group A and group B depending on the badge if user has assigned badge A then he should be able to join only group A not group B and vice versa too.
How can I implement this for my system too.
Kindly brief me the same.
