  • Assignee changed from Boone Gorges to Samantha Raddatz
  • Target version set to 1.9

Assigning to Sam for UX sketch. The way I envision it is:

  • Group admins will see a new subtab under Manage, called "Events" or "Events Calendar"
  • This tab will be the home of whatever group-specific options we add in the future
  • The option being requested here will be something like: "The following group members can connect events to this group" with the options "All group members", "Admins and mods only", and "Admins only". Default will be "All group members".
  • The "New Event" buttons will be hidden in the group interface for users that don't meet the specified criterion.
  • When creating/editing an event, the Groups autocomplete will not return groups where the current user doesn't meet the minimum role

Does this sound right? Better suggestion for wording, etc are welcome.

Sounds right to me, Boone.

Attached is a mockup of suggested layout. This is based on the 'settings' tab within 'manage', which I feel does a nice job of outlining what impact different options have and allows for adding further options later, if needed.
