Only an admin can change the group type.
Each group type adds different tools to your group. Choose from one of the following 6 group types.
|Group Type||What it Does|
|General||This is the default group type and includes the standard set of tools.|
|Buy and Sell||This sets the default post type in the group to sales listings, allows you to set a default currency and gathers all sales listings in one place in the group.|
|Social Learning||This allows you to create quizzes and lessons and track members' progress.|
|Video Games||This allows you to link your group to a specific game and host tournaments for members.|
|Parenting||This lets group members request to post anonymously and seek mentorship from other members.|
To change the group type in a group you admin:
- From your News Feed, click Groups in the left menu and select your group. If you don't see Groups, click See More.
- Click Settings in the left menu.
- Click next to Group Type.
- Select a group type and click Save.
You can change your group type at any time.
Note that if you change your group from a general group to another group type, you won’t be able to add or remove features — such as chats and Q&As — and you might lose access to some features.
