Can I transfer multiple yahoo groups to subgroups of a main group? #transfer

Hello,

like the header says.

I like to set up a main group with premium Membership and add some sub groups that all belongs to the same theme.
Then I like to tranfer the contents of the diferent yahoo groups to the sub groups.

Is this supported here at groups.io to do this?

Regards,

Isidro

Sure!  Everyone will need to be in the Main group.  When the Main transfer is done, everyone that gets transferred will get an email to that effect.  As each additional group is added as a subgroup (which will need to be set up before starting the transfer), they may get another email.  Anyone in one of the additional groups that isn't in the Main group will be added there when they're added to the subgroup.  Clear as mud?

Isidro,

Can I transfer multiple yahoo groups to subgroups of a main group?
Yes.

Perform a separate transfer for each Yahoo Group, selecting the appropriate Groups.io subgroup as the destination.

Your pre-paid upgrade to premium covers all the transfers into the primary group and its subgroups.

The one catch is that all members of a Groups.io subgroup must also be a member of the associated primary group. So as you do the transfers into subgroups, any addresses not already in the primary group will be automatically added to both the subgroup and primary group.

Reading this:

So If you start out with the subgroups, not the primary, the primary will be populated automagically.

Then could the primary be moderated for announcements pertinent to all subgroups?

I believe folks have set the main group as Announcement Group and used the subgroups for discussions.  In this mode, only Moderators can post though.  If you'd like others to be able to post, you'd need to make them moderators, or not set it this way.  Maybe set the main group to Moderate all messages to prevent discussion from accidentally getting started.

It hasn't been mentioned lately, but each group and subgroup has it's own settings, so they each need to be set as you'd like on their respective Settings page.
