Groups and Hidden Topics
There are a lot of things to talk about when you are interested in strategic planning. The Chorus shows everyone the basics but, it also supports you in expressing interest in some of the more specialized topics. These are accessed by joining a Group.
You can review the groups that are available by clicking on the groups icon in the site header. It's the one that looks like someone's head is exploding...
If you click on this, you will see a bunch of groups. If you click on any of these, you will see a list of people in the group and a list of posts.
You will also see a Join button. If you click on this, that topic will appear on your main page. If you are already in that group, the button will say, "Leave Group" instead. I will leave it as an exercise to the reader to figure out what that does.
It's worth noting that the forum software supports private groups. If you join one, the button will say, "Invitation Pending". The next time the group owner visits the site, he or she will be notified and can then accept you into the group.
