How to Move a Group

You can access this feature from the MSL Admin site. Only Super Admins with Membership Admins or Site Admins permissions can access the Group Details window.

Before proceeding, moving a Group can affect if and where it is displayed on your MSL website.

You can move a Group to live under a different parent organisation, but only if the new parent organisation's group type allows it. If the parent group doesn't allow the type of group you're trying to move, you'll need to change the group's type first. For further information, see How to Change a Group's Type and Grouping Types.

For further information, see Group Details.
