In indexing groups, what are administration rights and how do I get them?

In group indexing, the person who creates the group is the group owner. This person is also a group administrator. 


A group administrator has the ability to manage the group in the following ways:

  • Assign other group members to be administrators so that they, too, can assist in managing the group.
  • Edit the group profile.
  • Send announcements to group members.
  • See and customize reports.
  • Adopt projects for the group.
  • Send messages to group members.
  • Create and delete subgroups.
  • Delete the group.
  • Invite members to become part of invitation-only groups
  • Accept requests from people who would like to be part of a request to join group.
  • Remove group members
  • Make another group member a group administrator

Becoming a group administrator

You can become a group administrator in one of the following ways:

  • By creating a new indexing group.
  • Asking a group administrator of a current group or subgroup to change your role to group administrator.

Note: Some members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are assigned to be group administrators as part of their Church calling.
