Creating a Custom MapleCloud Group

You can optionally create a custom group to share content with a specific group of Maple users from the MapleCloud palette. When you create a custom group, you can control group membership and the content shared in your group.

By default, when you create a custom group, the group owner and all the approved members can view the content shared in the group and all members can share content. If you want to restrict who can view and share content, you can create a read-only or opaque custom group.

For more information about custom groups, see MapleCloud Groups.

To create a custom group:

1. 

Expand the MapleCloud palette.

2. 

Click the More actions... button ( ).

3. 

Log in to the MapleCloud Document Exchange.

4. 

Click the Manage Groups tab.

5. 

In the Groups that I manage section, click the add button ( ).

6. 

In the top field, enter a name for your group.

7. 

In the next field, enter a brief description that will help others to identify your group.

8. 

If you want to restrict who can view and share content, specify the permissions that you want to assign.

Option

Description

Open

Any user who is logged in to the MapleCloud Document Exchange can request to join the group. By default, this option is selected.

When this option is not selected, the group is not visible in the list of available groups to join.

Read only

Create a read-only custom group. When this option is selected, only the group owner can share content. Group members can view content, but cannot share content.

By default, this option is not selected.

Opaque

Create an opaque custom group. When this option is selected, both the group owner and group members can share content. However, group members can only view their own shared content and content shared by the group owner; they cannot view content shared by other group members.

By default, this option is not selected.

 

9. 

Click Create. The new group is listed in the Groups that I manage section.

If you created an open group, users can now request to join your group.

Note: After creating a group, you cannot change its properties.
