Basic group settings

What is a group?

A group is a collection of members within an organization who can discuss topics of importance to them. This could be a sporting team, a software project, a team within a business, a school group, or any other group of people who want to discuss over email. By organizing your Topicbox organization into various groups, you can help streamline discussions and make sure members are connected to the discussions pertinent to them.

An organization can have many groups, each one having its own purpose, and groups can be public or private.
