How do I set up a group discussion?

After setting up a group site and managing Member Options, click Next Step to go to the Group Discussion screen.

Now you need to decide if your group will have a discussion board. The discussion feature lets people post topics and respond to them. This feature is a good way to get responses from a group. It can also serve the function that a Listserv might, since users can receive emails when fellow members post to the board (see the discussion about “email subscriptions”).

If you decide that you want one, make sure the Yes, I want this group to have a discussion board box is checked; if not, uncheck it. You can change your mind later if you are not sure. Either way, click Next Step to go on to the next screen.
