When creating a new Group, by default, all groups will start with the same settings. However, you can use a Group Template to preset the settings of all new Groups based on an existing group's settings. This can be done through both New Group Registration and an upload.
When using the Group Template feature, all of the settings from the Group selected will be copied over with the exception of the following:
Basic Settings (Group Name, Group Type, Categories, Group Acronym)
For this reason, it is recommended that you create a template Group to copy settings from rather than using an existing Group as the template.
Follow these steps to set up a Group Template through New Group Registration.
Navigate to Admin > Settings > Approval Processes
Click Create Process or edit an existing one
Scroll to the bottom and select a group within the Group Template dropdown
Groups created with the Approval Process will have the same Settings as the group selected
Follow these steps to upload new groups using the Group Template:
Input the Group Acronym of the the group you would like to use as a template in the group_template_acronym column
