This is the second in a series of blog posts to introduce you to the remodel of Yahoo! Groups.
Today’s post will be focused on Group Descriptions.
- How do members find Group Descriptions?
Initially, you may have seen the information icon located to the left of the group name for group members to access the Group Description.
After your feedback about how difficult the icon was to find, we decided to replace the icon with the About tab in the left navigation bar.
This tab is always visible to all group members. When members click on the tab, they will see a larger version of the group image, group description, group information, and group email addresses.
- How do visitors to my group access Group Descriptions?
Visitors to your group, on the other hand, will always see this information by default.
They will also see additional tabs in the left navigation bar (such as Messages) only if the group has enabled those features to be available to Anyone.
Visitors can learn more about a group and then easily join using the prominent Join Group button.
- How do I make changes to my Group Description?
Group owners and moderators can access the Group Description via the Management Tab in the Left Navigation Bar.
You will see an alert notifying you that the management settings haven’t been remodeled yet.
Just click the “Continue” button and you will see the management settings you are already familiar with.
To change your Group Description:
- Under the “Group Settings” section, click on “Description & Appearance” on the right column.
- Click on the “Edit” link to the right of “Description” in the second row.
After making your changes, click on “Save Changes” at the bottom of page and your Group Description will be updated.
The next in the series will focus on Members, privacy, and Settings. Stay tuned!
