To use Self-Defining groups as requirements on your Election posts, MSL first has to configure the owning organisation of your Self-Defining groups. If you're unsure if you've already set up an owning organisation, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To Set Up Self-Definition:
- Create the owning organisation of your Self-Defining groups. For further information, see How to Set Up a Self-Defining Groups Owning Organisation
- Contact email@example.com, providing the ID of the owning organisation
- MSL adds the ID to your MSL System's settings, ready for you to create your Self-Defining groups
TABLE OF CONTENTS
You can access this feature from the MSL System Admin site. Only Super Admins with Membership Admins or Site Admins permissions can access the Create New Group window.
