We just had Community Bubbles 1.1 installed and now I am trying to figure out how to use this function. I have been through the documentation and still have questions. It doesn't work as I imagined.

For example, I have been using groups to manage access to spaces. That seems consistent with Communities because the Community Space Settings has an entry for Membership Group. I would think that I could have all the members in that Membership Group added en masse to the new Community. Sandra O'Donovan informed me that there isn't any way to add members to a community en masse. That would be a nice feature. But if that isn't the case, please explain the relationship between the Membership Group and the Community Space membership. I have read https://www.adaptavist.com/display/Bubbles/Community+Settings. Does the content there mean that new invites are automatically added to the group? I guess that helps some since it might mean that we have means for Space or Community Admins to add members to a group even if they don't have site admin privileges.

How do Community Admins differ from Space Admins? How does one establish who are the Community Admins?

I don't understand how to determine whether Enrolment should be "closed" or "network." (I've read https://www.adaptavist.com/display/Bubbles/Enrolment+Settings.) Our intention is to have an admin control Community membership. Is the only difference who can invite members?

I look forward to getting help to make this whole function work. Thanks.

Tom

    What Sandra has told you is correct, there is no way currently to add all members of a group to a community (other then by using the search function and selecting the user names to add). When a new user is added as a community member they will automatically get added to the community membership group so they will get permission to see the space.(Assuming you have given access to see the space to the group).

    How do Community Admins differ from Space Admins? How does one establish who are the Community Admins?

    There is no difference currently. Although for some things like sending out notification emails when there is a join request these will only go to people that are explictly defined in the space permissions rather then to users that are members of a group that has space admin permission.

    I don't understand how to determine whether Enrolment should be "closed" or "network.

    In the network enrolment the community admins are completely responsible for managing the membership, users can't join/invite/leave. In closed enrolment user can request to join and invite other users and can leave the community at any time.
