Setting a group to be joinable by other users

This article explains how to allow users to join a specific group in Engage.

This article is for TEACHERS. 🍏📝


We know how important it is that teachers have access to time-saving tools. Setting a group to ‘joinable’ allows other users to join a group easily themselves, eliminating the need for teachers or administrators to add users to the group, either individually or in bulk

✅ On the Groups page, joinable groups will appear with a green tag saying ‘joinable’ so you can distinguish between groups that users can join versus those that cannot be joined.


To set a group as ‘joinable’:

  1. Navigate to ‘Groups’ when logged in to Engage.  
  2. Create a new group, OR click on the name of an existing group that you would like to edit then select the ‘Edit’ button at the top of the next page.
  3. Using the drop-down menu, select ‘Yes’ under ‘Joinable’, then click ‘Save’.

Your group will now be visible to other users on the Overview page in Engage, where they will easily be able to join.

❎  To change this setting so that users are no longer able to join a specific group, simply follow the steps above but select ‘No’ under ‘Joinable’. 

⛔  Your group will subsequently be removed from the Overview page in Engage and users will not be able to add themselves to that group. 

👫  Existing users will remain in the group.
