Use group managers to allow trusted people to take the lead in communicating to their groups.
This feature enables you to provide select users with access to communicate to one or more groups.
What is a Group Manager?
A group manager is a user who has been assigned permission to manage any open or restricted groups in your group list.
A group manager can do the following for groups they manage:
Create and manage posts from the web console or the Audiri app including:
Creating image galleries
Sharing PDFs, forms and more.
Create and manage events to display in the Audiri Calendar (on the app).
Create and manage forms, as well as view and process completed form submissions in the web console.
Benefits of using group managers
Here are a few benefits of using group managers:
Increase efficiency by using group managers to reduce an admin's workload and streamline communications.
If you are constantly juggling multiple communications with multiple groups or classes, use this to empower your team and teachers to take the lead in communicating with their own groups/classes.
Communicate in real time. Group Managers can post from the app, enabling them to post announcements and updates on the go.
As an added benefit, they create an image gallery for their post in the app.
Reduce administrative work. Not only posts, but also forms and events can be managed through Group Managers.
Even with limited access, a group manager can create forms and access form submissions from both the web console and through email.

Recommended groups to set up with group managers

Here are some ideas to help you make the most of this function:
Recommended Group Managers
To provide updates on year-specific announcements and/or reminders.
Sports coordinators, trainers
Use Audiri to collect permission from sports-specific groups and announce games. As an example, an upcoming rugby match.
Classroom or homeroom teachers
To provide updates to parents on class-specific items including photos from excursions or in-class activities.
To help fundraise for the school by using Audiri as a platform to engage with parents. They can also survey parents using Forms.
To communicate any key activities to regular volunteers and/or ask for more volunteers through Forms.
Frequently ask questions
Can I provide access to post only?
No. Access to Forms and Events is required, as these items can be attached to a post created on the web console. However, the group manager will only have access to the group you give them access to, meaning they won't be able to create posts, events or forms for any other groups.
I am trying to allocate a user as a group manager but I can't select them.
If the user is already an administrator, they already have the highest possible access and can access the features for all groups and categories, so there is no need to make them a group manager. If they are not an administrator, make sure they have the app and if all else fails, please contact our team using the chat icon at the bottom righthand corner of the web console.
What if I only want the user to have access to the completed form submissions?
No problem! Use conditional notifications to enable another team member to automatically receive emails with access to completed form submissions when the parent submits them. Read more here.
