Individual groups are managed via the Groups Panel. This can be accessed in various ways:
Multiple group panels may be opened.
The Groups Panel has four tabs; these will be discussed in the sections below.
This first tab has general information about the group.
At the bottom of the tab are 3 buttons, as follows:
This tab gives access to the membership list and group roles. It is in turn divided into three tabs.
The first section shows the list of group members 2). It is divided into 3 columns: name, donation and status. The donation column indicates whether the member has donated land to the group, and if so, the parcel size in sqm. Status shows the date of last login, or whether currently online. The list may be sorted by clicking any of the column headers.
If you click on a name, the middle and lower sections of the tab populate. More on those briefly.
Below the member list are two buttons, which will be activated only if your group role permits.
The middle section of this tab lists the available group roles. The roles assigned to the currently selected group member will have a check mark. If you have the ability, you can change the role(s) for the person here, then save changes with the button at the bottom.
The bottom section allows you to override specific role settings for the selected group member - again, assuming your own group role allows it.
In this tab, you can view - and if your own role allows, modify - the group roles (titles) and associated abilities. The top section lists the role names, the title to be displayed as a tag and the count of members in that roles. This list may be sorted by clicking any column titles.
Below this are two buttons:
Following this is a section where the details of the currently selected role can be edited: the name of the role, the title (which is shown as an avatar tag), an optional description of the role, and a check box, Reveal members; if enabled, then people in this role will be visible on the groups membership list to anyone viewing the group profile, including non-members.
Underneath this section is a list of avatars who are assigned to the currently selected role.
And lastly, there is the list of abilities associated with the role. Enable or disable as appropriate for the role.
This third tab gives an overview of the previous two, from the perspective of abilities.
The top section lists all group abilities. Select one, and the sections below will list which group roles, and which group members, have the corresponding ability.
The upper section of this tab displays recent notices sent to the group. The list is arranged in columns. The first indicates whether the notice has an attachment, and what kind. Then comes the notice title, followed by the sender and date sent. The list may be sorted by clicking any of the column titles.
The lower part of the tab allows a new notice to be created, if your group role has the ability to send notices. Click the + New Notice button to create a new one. (The circular arrow to the right refreshes the list of notices above.)
When creating a new notice, type in the notice title. This should be short but descriptive. This is followed by the body of the notice itself, which is limited to 512 characters.
If you wish to attach a landmark, object or notecard, you may drag it into the space provided, or click the Inventory button; select the item to attach from the picker window that opens. If you change your mind about the attachment (eg, you selected the wrong one), click the small trashcan icon.
To send the notice, click the Send button. To cancel it, simply click anything else.
The list at the top shows each parcel the group owns, the region where the parcel is located, the region type where the parcel is located, and size of the parcel.
Below this is a summary of the total contributions made by group members to the land, and then your own contributions. You can increase the land you contribute by typing in a value - up to the maximum shown underneath.
The Map button displays the select parcel on the World Map.
Then there are three tabs:
Shows the Linden dollar summary for the group along with the next stipend date.
Linden dollars earned by the group through group fees, plus land and object sales, appear in this summary and are disbursed on the next stipend date to group members who have been assigned a role that receives group dividends.
Shows details of Linden dollars disbursed by the group since the previous stipend date.
Shows group land or object sales since the last stipend date.
