What is Public Group and Private Group?
When Infoyana designed its groups features, our designers asked themselves what do users need? We know that different people, different organizations have different needs. Thus, we created the 2 main group types : Public Groups and Private Groups.
If you need a group to share and discuss events or issues, opinions, products, fan clubs, or dissemination of information to the general public. Creating a public group is the right choice. If you don't have a website, creating a public group will provide your the web presence that will allow you to share information with your customers and the general public.
When people post to your public groups, Infoyana will notify you, via Instant Messanger or email, of the new postings so that you can respond accordingly.
When you make announcements, Infoyana will notify all people that have posted to your public groups via Instant Messanger or email.
Anybody can become member of your group. Everybody can see your group postings, information or download any file attachment from your public groups.
If you are a user, participate in as many public groups as you wish. Think of it as a public forum for comments and sharing. You can even post a question if you want to. Group knowledge is the future of sharing on the Internet.
If you are looking for a private area for your group - like Private clubs, NGOs, sales team, football club, hobbies or people with similar interests etc . . . then private group is the right place for you to host it.
To become a member one must request to join the group. The Group Administrator can accept or reject membership applications. Only members can view postings, discuss, share files and photos in private group.
You can even arrange for outtings, seminars or even weddings using Infoyana Dates & Events apps. Members can read the description of your events and sign up online. As the Group Administrator, you can print out the sign-up list on the day of the event and use it as the attendance list.
