About 'Site Group'

All members and Site Administrators are part of the "Site Group" by default. The "Site Group" would be the place to publish content that you are comfortable with any web visitor seeing, and which isn’t particular to any group. All content not otherwise published to a group is published to the "Site Group".

Users set as Group Administrators do not have any additional privileges.

Common Uses

Staff Departments

If using a Staff widget (WordPress)on your Amplify website, you can utilize the group option to organize your team into different department groups (pastors, operations, children's, etc.) within a Staff Series, or a single group, such as a 'Staff' Group.
