How do I create a new web group?

To create a new group:

  1. Ensure you are signed in (from any SiteBuilder or Forum page).
  2. Go to the WebGroups site (http://webgroups.warwick.ac.uk).
    You should see six tabs at the top of the page.
  3. To create a new group, click on the 'Create group' tab.
    A new Create group editing page will appear which will look like this:

  4. Complete the 'Group name' field by entering a name for your group. It will automatically start with a two letter code for your department, such as 'in' for Information Services, followed by a hyphen.
    See the full list of all the departmental codes. You can use hypens or underscores to separate words within the group name if you wish.

    Note: changing the name of your group at a later date will require you to update all permissions on SiteBuilder pages, Blogs etc to reflect the new group name.

  5. Complete a description for the group.
  6. Add the members for your group using their IT Services username or their Library Card number. (You can also add existing WebGroups to a new WebGroup by using the group's code.)
  7. Add the owners of the group, again using their IT Services username or their Library card number.
  8. Click on the 'Create group' button to create the group.
  9. You should now see your group, under the 'My groups' tab. From here you can edit or delete the group and also see a list of group members.
