I’m an admin trying to add users to a group silently – I’m using groups as a sort of email list as I onboard users into beta testing.
So first I add them to a “Onboarding” group which has these settings:
- Group and members can only be seen by Group Owners (me)
- Only admins can mention or message this group
I’m adding the users by dumping a list in the Add Users flow on the group’s page, with both options unchecked including “Notify Users”.
What’s strange is that after adding them all, I get notifications like `Username accepted your invitation". They seem to show up for a handful of users, maybe 10-15 when adding hundreds of people to the group.
My question is, why are they being notified at all?
It seems at odds with @joe’s comments here:
and @markvanlan’s post here:
Is this a bug or is there some subtlety to the group adding behavior I’m missing? Thanks!
