Sorry. I am a novice in this network. I would like to create a private group for collaboration between high school teachers in my local section. I found several help pages (links below) in the Knowledge Base on groups but do not find the features or functions that are mentioned.
Can anyone tell me what I am missing?
If you are interested in creating a group, please send an email to ACSNetworkFeedback@acs.org and we can set on up for you. We migrated to a new platform earlier this year and at this point, only administrators can create groups.
Thank you, Chris. I appreciate your reply. At this point, we are exploring ways to create a topic discussion group within our local section website platform. That sounds like it will give us more management control, hopefully with little or no additional cost.
i just reread this and let me say that once we set you up, there you should have control and there is no cost. It is an easy platform to use.
Thanks again. I am interested. One more question: The group is intended to engage high school teachers who live/work in our local section and belong to AACT. Most of them will not be ACS members. Is it possible for such users to have access or will ACS membership be necessary?
They will need an ACS ID but that does NOT require ACS membership. You can send the request with a suggested name, purpose, and boards needed to ACSNetworkFeedback@acs.org.
I also just posted an article which gives the very basics around a group hub. https://communities.acs.org/t5/ACS-Blog/Group-Hubs-a-tool-for-collaboration/ba-p/86527
