Auto create forum group

Mar 4, 2013 at 8:31 AM
I use nearforum with my mvc application. I use nearforum as sub site. I have following requirement to do

Can u check is it possible with nearforum and whats best way to do that

Here is my requirement

I need a way to create groups for each department and each Agency. So for instance, if there are say three Schools. They will all have a department called business office. I need all department users to be able to talk to other users in their group/department but only for that agency. It’s for agency department level communication. So basically, every time we create a department or a group, I guess it could automatically create the forum group you would just have to figure out a way to have multiple forums with the same name or just append the agency name before it.

Hi,
Currently the user groups are fixed, meaning that you can not create new ones or change how they behave...
Kind Regards,

Hi,
Yes you sure can, but It would require significant changes in the code...
You must override the User and UserState classes to add the "custom groups", then you should change the login functionality to load that classes.
