Thanks for the suggestion - I had checked out autogroups, but unfortunately none of the memberships on our board are based on criteria within the board itself.
If I understand correctly members of one group which you have already added would be made leaders of another group. Isn't the criteria being a member of the first group?
Correct. For instance, as we have some structure based on country - there are say 3 levels of groups in most countries/regions, and a number of groups that apply world wide.
If the top level group in each country could be a group leader for the 2 subordinate groups and the world groups, then we'd only need to add a user to the top level group instead of adding them to 4 or more groups as leaders to manage users.
You can imagine when you have many thousands of users coming through each day and varying levels of activity and rotation through the ladder that managing group membership becomes very time intensive and things often fall out of date with so many spots to update.
That said, I fully admit that there needs to be some admin practice updates and enforcement of the board, but as a worldwide (ie - many languages) platform provided by a company and run by the community it can be difficult to coordinate that. Therefore the idea for groups as group leaders to take a chunk of that burden.
