Customize your Groups!

We’ve introduced some new options to customize a group’s interface. Group admins now have the option to hide features that aren’t relevant to the group in Manage → Settings.

In addition, group admins can change the default landing page for their group from “Activity,” if they wish.

For instance, if a group wants a place to have discussion and collect syllabi and teaching materials deposited in CORE, the group admin might hide Events, Docs, and Files and make “Discussion” the landing page.

Group admins will still see the hidden menu items, greyed out. A group member who is not an admin will not see the greyed out items.
