Setting up self-enrollment in groups

Self-enrollment allows users to enroll in groups on their own. Use this option when you want users to have the freedom to choose their own group members or to be a part of a group on a topic that interests them.

Users can self enroll in groups by clicking the Choose Group link beside the name of a group category set up for self enrollment. The link displays at the top of the user’s Groups page when self-enrollment is available.

Note  If a group is full, the total listed in the Members column appears in red with the word ‘Full’ beside it.

Tip  Clicking on the total listed in the Members column opens the Group Members pop-up containing a list of current group members.
