AirSpace New Feature: Groups
The ability to create and manage your own group is another new addition to AirSpace and is something that we are very excited about. Just imagine being able to create a group on any topic of aviation interest, historical event, aircraft type, job role, air show/conference or business need. This grouping function allows you to do just that.
To briefly explain, groups are essentially smaller communities that exist within the larger AirSpace, similar to Google or Yahoo groups.
Each group has its own content, membership, and permissions that allow you to be as open or as closed as you wish to be. Within each group there is a blog, a gallery, a forum, and also individual pages for you to edit as you wish.
Like a Google group, these groups can be created by you and be as open or as closed as you wish, therefore allowing you to share your content with the wider AirSpace community or with a select number that requires approval to enter.
How is a Group Created?
All you have to do is click the "Create a Group" link in the sidebar of the "Groups" home page to immediately create a group. Groups can be defined to be "Public (Open Membership)", "Public (Closed Membership)", or "Private".
Alternatively, you can just find the group you like and click on join this group (or if it is a closed group, you may have to get permission first).
If you have any questions or if you want to create a group but don't know where to start, please contact me.
