How do I create a Group in the Forum

Hello All,

I am a teacher teaching a Game Design class remotely. I am wondering if there is a way I can get all of my students into a group in the forum. I see there is a “Groups I Own” option but how to I create a group to own?

Thanks for the help.

Hi @Carlos_Rios, I’m afraid users can’t create their own groups. Your best alternative is to use something like Discord, Slack or create a DM with your class users in there if you wish to talk to each other privately.

@yaustar Apologies, but that is not entirely accurate. ‘Basic’ forum users can create PM groups and add in a selective users:

As you may see in the screenshot, I also state that group PMs are also not very private.
Ergo I concur on your suggestions for others to use alternative chat platforms.

Ah my apologies again then… The general term from others to refer to DM is for Discord, while forum usage is called PMs… You were using them interchangeably; which I didn’t catch. Thanks for clearing up my mistake.
