Advanced Group



Advanced Group now fully supports Responsive and Mobile View

Advanced Group is integrated with Mobile Application

SocialEngine Basic Group plugin is basic where not many features offered for Site Administrator, Group Owners and Group Member such as Useful Links, Group Email, Group Video, External Inviter and so on. The privacy configuration is quite simple, Group Ownership could not be transferred; Permission to upload Video, Photo is able to restrict to certain member levels.

Advanced Group plugin enhances SocialEngine Basic Group; it enables Site Admin and Group Owner to secure community better when providing multiple settings on Permission and Privacy configuration. Moreover, with External Inviter, current members are able to invite their friends to join community and their groups. This would rapidly increase number of  group members and site members. Sharing feature is also more interesting when Members are able to share their Photo, Video, etc. within their group members.

The plugin now reaches to the next stage of evolution where it brings up better mobile web user experiences. Advanced Group now works perfectly compatible with our Mobile View Template. Users can easily stay social on-the-go.

Best compatibility: SE 4.8.x – 4.10.x
