A group is very similar to a user profile in the ONEsite system in that it shares nearly all functionality with a user profile. However a group is owned by one user, and other users are allowed to also join and then share content with each other in a central location. Groups can be private and only available to members an owner invites or they can be open to all members.

Structure of a Group
A group shares many similarities with a user on the ONEsite platform. The main difference, however, is that a group represents more than a single user. While it can have only a single owner, it can have an unlimited number of moderators and members.
- Creator/Owner – This is the individual who has control and responsibility of the group.
- Moderators – Group moderators are selected by the group owner. They must first be a member of the group and can then be promoted to moderator from the Manage Group Members page found in the group navigation menu.
- Members – Members are logged in community members who have chosen or been invited to participate in the group.
- Guests – Guests are visitors to a group. By default, a logged in community member who is not part of a group may only leave comments or respond to forum posts in a group.
All the functionality of a profile for a user is available to a group. However, groups can also have their own forums. Functionality of a group includes:
- Wiki (optional)
While the group system has a standard expected definition and features, it is also one of our most versatile parts of our platform.
- Normal user created groups
- Official groups
- Sponsored groups
