Hi! Is it possible to map new users (who have opt-in to an institution) automatically to a group? Thanks for your answer.

Hello Dietmar,

short answer: you will find the informations about your questions right here in the forums Cool

detailed howto Wink:

While creating/editing your group you can select the option:
Users auto-added? YesNo

this will Automatically put all new users into this group!

This feature is a great tool to get an overview who joined the mahara site, to send welcomes e.g.

Indeed Wink Note that this option is only available for site admins who are creating groups, to prevent the chance of spam.

What I'm trying to explain you: When there are more than only one institutions and more than only one groups: How can I set up that (for example) users, who are members of instituation 1 where automatically mapped to group 1 ... 2 to 2 and 3 to 3 ... and so on ...

Hello Dietmar,

If  I have understood you right, Maybe it woul be useful to program some sort of script that checks the users that are enrolled in a particular institution and add them to the  corresponding groups you want them enrolled.

You need to use the tables:  usr, autho_instance, group and group_member.

 

Regards

Hi - there's no options to do this in Mahara right now, but as Aaricia says it can probably be done with a bit of code. The method addUserAsMember in lib/institution.php would be a good place to start perhaps.
