Step 4 - The Group has now been shared!
How to share an event:
Step 1 - In your community go into the event that you want to share.
Step 2 - Select the share button on the right hand side of the event.
Step 3 - Now you will see a pop up where you can create a post and select the group that you would like to share the event to. In the same way as groups, simply select the post button once you are happy.
Step 4 - The event has now been shared!
1. What group types can I share?
You can share Private and Public groups across any community. Secret and Mandatory groups can not be shared. This is due to wanting to keep secret groups inline with their logic and not wanting unwanted member from discovery them. This is also the case with Mandatory groups but it this instance, every member will already be a part of this group and therefore would not need to discover it.
2. Can I share more then 1 event or group at a time?
Unfortunately at this moment in time you can only share 1 event or group per post.
3. What happens if I am not apart of a shared group?
If you come across a Shared Group that you are not apart of, you can easily join that Group directly from the feed. Simply Select the join button on the shared group to join that group. This will then change to say Member.
4. Can I RSVP to a shared event?
Ofcourse! If an event has been shared that you have not RSVP'd to you can do it directly from the post. Simply select the Respond button where you will be given the option of Going, Interested and not Going. This event will then change to display your current RSVP for that Event.
