Ability to force replies to communications from one subgroup to be routed to a different subgroup #suggestion
I'm new here (this particular subgroup) but have been running three groups.io accounts (channels?) for about 3 years.
One of these accounts was a move from an already existing situation (managed on a private server so we could do as we liked). There was an existing rule where an elist was set up for announcements, and all replies to those announcements would be forced to route to a second elist that was set up for discussion.
I haven't yet found a way to implement this rule on the groups.io platform yet.
If a way doesn't yet exist, then I offer this as a suggestion to consider.
If a way DOES exist, please point me at the documentation or otherwise assist me.

The options on Groups.io are reply to group, reply to sender, both, topic followers, or moderators. I believe some people have the main group set as announcement only, then use a subgroup for discussion. Any messages sent to the main group are rejected with the explanation that it's announcement only.
This is a user-to-user group and we have no connection to Groups.io management. You have to post suggestions on the beta group or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I think similar suggestions have been made in the past, but the implementation hasn't happened, probably due to complexity.
The Groups.io Help Center includes the Owners Manual and Members Manual.
They can be browsed online or downloaded as PDF files.
