As an officer you have the tools to manage all your members and contacts within your group page. Current members are active members within your group. Those under contacts are non-paying individuals with restricted access within the platform who may have signed up for events you sponsored or those you added for networking purposes.
To mange your group contacts, you can do so by these steps:
Separate your audience:
You can separate the different types of contacts depending on your group activity with creating member tags or sub-group tags:
Students interested in receiving newsletters
Students interested in taking part of the group's management
Advisors, Campus staff, etc.
Event partners, suppliers, rentals, etc.
Situations in which you can collect/save prospects' emails:
Prospects are people who have expressed an interest in your group and are also identified by the following situations:
People signing up for an event, without being a member
Students expressing interest in attending a group presentation, whose emails you have collected and uploaded into CampusGroups even though they have not joined the group yet
Students having registered to your group but not (yet) paid membership (may not be the case when membership dues = $0)
Former members with expired membership, whether they plan to renew or not
CampusGroups has several ways to categorize groups:
Member tags (hidden from members) allow to tag members with tags only accessible to Administrators and Officers of the group
Sub-Groups (opt out/in possible) allow to tag members as well, and tagged members can see how they are categorized
Parent/child feature allows to restrict a group access to people who have joined the group's parent group
Group Types allow divisions to manage separate sets of groups
