Wix Groups: Adding and Managing Your Group Members

6 min read
Add people to your group to bring them into a shared space where they can network, collaborate and start discussions.

You can also assign members as a group admin if you need help monitoring your group activity and managing the member list. Additionally, you can grant members permission to create groups by themselves and build an online community around your business.

Setting a group member as an admin

You need to be the group owner to create admins.

To set an admin:

  1. Go to your group:
    • In your site's dashboard: Go to Groups.
    • On your live site: Log in with your Wix account credentials. 
  2. Click the relevant group.
  3. Click the Members tab.

Choosing who can create groups

You have full control over which site members can create groups. You can decide if members need approval to create a group or if only admins can create new groups.

To choose who can create groups:

  1. Go to Groups in your site's dashboard.
  2. Click the More Actions icon  at the top right and select General Settings
  3. Select the checkbox next to the relevant option:
    • All site members: All members can create a new group without needing an admin's approval. 
    • Site members with admin approval: All members can request to create a new group, but you (or another admin) need to approve the request.
    • Only admins: Only you and other admins may create new groups. 
  4. Click Save
