Member management

Manage members from the Members tab on your Group page.

Click on the three dots () to the right of the group member you wish to Set title, Make admin or Demote admin, or Remove from group.

Admin

There are only two user types in a Loomio group; member and admin.

Admins perform administrative tasks for your group including; add and remove members, grant and remove admin permissions, change group privacy and member permission settings, upgrade and manage subscription plans.

The person creating a new Loomio group is made admin by default. We recommend to make at least one other person in your group admin, to insure someone can always administer your group.

Admins are people you trust to administer your group. You can have as many admins in your group as you wish.

To make a member admin, go to the Members tab, find the member and click on the three dots () next to their name. Choose Make admin. An Admin tag will appear beside their name.

Selecting make admin from the membership dropdown menu

Managing subgroups

If you are the admin of a parent group, or organization, you have additional permissions with regards to any closed subgroups.

You will be able to join any closed subgroup by clicking the "Join Group" button on the left of the Subgroup page in question (just under the tabs).

Once you have joined the subgroup, you will also be able to make yourself the admin of that subgroup, just as you would promote anyone to admin (see above).

Note: these permissions do not extend to secret subgroups.

Removing group members

When you click Remove from group you'll be asked to confirm the removal. Upon removal, this user will no longer have access to the group's pages, threads, polls, or proposals. They will receive no further emails or notifications of group activity. However, any comments and votes written by the user will remain untouched.

After you have removed someone from the group, you can add them back to the group later if you wish.

Leaving a group

To leave a group go to the Group page's Settings tab and click Leave group.

Assigning titles

You can name the role someone has within the group, or identify which organization they represent using the title feature. You or an admin can change yours by clicking set title from the dropdown near your name in the desired group's Members tab. image

You can even have different titles in different subgroups.

Membership requests

If your group's advanced settings allow people to join your group by request, an admin will need to approve each membership request. Group coordinators will receive an email each time there is a new membership request. The link in the notification email will take you to the Requests page, where you can approve or decline the request.

To find pending requests for memberships, navigate to the Members tab of your Group page and click the Requests button on the right.
