I’m having trouble finding where in the settings to create new groups. I couldn’t find anything in the documentation. ThanksOctober 5, 2019 at 7:32 pm #12699
The way I did it was I logged in as a new member and since the member was in the group that had create group I created my first group. Then as admin joined that group. After creating the groups my admin account was able to create groups. So I deleted the fake account and as admin was able to delete the fake accounts group. Presto now I have my groups.
Hope this helps.April 11, 2020 at 12:19 am #13713
I tried Don Dubuque’s workaround, but did not work for me. Should there not be a FORM to create a Group under Settings, in any case (Group name, short description)?
I can’t see any answer to this – am I missing it somewhere? Newbie – appreciate any pointers! Thanks!April 23, 2020 at 1:07 pm #13781
I’m having the same issue. Can’t find a way to create groups and assign users to them.
The documentation doesn’t mention anything about groups and how to create/manage them. Couldn’t find any tutorial as well.

Well, I finally was able to create groups and assign users. As Admin I accessed my profile (/member) page and on the left, there was an arrow down at the right side of the user’s name. Clicking the arrow dow a menu shows up with a + Create New Group option.
Hope that helps.April 23, 2020 at 9:04 pm #13791
Phew! Well done!

Honestly, I was looking at Buddypress at this very moment. It seems a lot of complexity but at least you have plenty of documentation and resources (maybe too much). I’ll give ultra community another day before opting out.
All I need is to have a way to group users (non profit organizations in this case) in themes so a visitor looking for “animal welfare orgs”, “human rights”, or “fighting poverty”, for example, will find a list with organizations he/she may help. Each organization would have a profile page with its activities, volunteer opportunities, contact info, how to donate, etc.April 25, 2020 at 9:39 am #13799
I’m trying to do this as well. How do I access my admin profile page?April 25, 2020 at 12:19 pm #13800
While logged as admin, change the URL to <yourdomain>/member. It should show current members profile page.June 28, 2020 at 9:04 pm #14372
Forget about Buddy Press if you want to use S3 or other CDN. It will knock out your cover and user profile images and there is no solution. This problem goes back 6 years and BuddyBoss is not an option as it has the same issueJuly 14, 2020 at 7:51 am #14433
I can create public and private groups. But cannot seem to invite or populate members in a private group. Private groups are essential for our member community.
