Have anyone figured out a way to automatically populate user to multiple usergroups?
I've been using secondary group, but need a way to automate that as we been having user move for one business forum to another. Here is the current setup:
Forum: General, Usergroup: Subscribers
Forum: Account, Usergroup: Accounting
Forum: Marketing, Usergroup: Marketing
Form: IT, Usergroup: IT
Jane belongs to Subscribers, IT and Marketing
Jonathan belongs to Subscribers and IT
Richard belongs to Subscribers and Accounting
Everyone by default is Subscribers. However, as an admin, I have been going in to check off those secondary groups. The pain comes in when staffs move around. For example Jonathan took a position in digital marketing, so as an admin, we need to promptly add his access. In Wordpress, user Roles gets updated automatically. How can this be done in wpForo?
In Wordpress, user Roles gets updated automatically.
The main usergroup is changed when a user role is changed in WordPress. Just make sure the User Roles are synched with usergroups in Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups admin page.
You should have one user role synched with one user group, if the groups are more than one they'll not be synched. Please read the descriptions and notes in the Usergroup admin page.
I have double checked all the status is shown as synched in usergroup... ran the synch again after 100% complete. It is still the same. Jonathan in above scenario, is only shown as being in IT usergroup and not Marketing.
Here is my mapping:
Role: IT Usergroup: IT
Role: Accounting Usergroup: Accounting
Role: Marketing Usergroup: Marketing
Jonathan belongs to both IT and Marketing roles, but under Member tab, he is only listed as being in IT only. I have to manually check off Marketing as secondary group in WordPress user tab. Is there a way to automate this? If user belong into multiple user group, the system automatically update user info with appropriate group and vice versa when user role is remove.
