I can see the setting that restricts who can message a group. But I’ve discovered that anyone in the group can reply to that initial message, even if they aren’t allowed to create messages in the first place.
It would be very helpful if there were a permission that could be set on a per-group basis that would control this functionality a bit better. In some groups, only group owners can reply to messages. In other groups, anyone in the group can reply to a message.
I’m not sure whether this is a feature request or a support request. Does this already exist? Am I just missing it?
EDIT to add my use case:
In my organization, I have many groups of varying sizes. Some of the groups are largish, and I don’t want to give just anyone the ability to send a message to the whole group just because they are in that group.
The permissions on topics are perfect: they give me the option to specify that group members can create, reply to or see topics within that category. I think I need a similar setting for group messages.
