Martech Mashup: Batch-Add to Domain-based Google Communities

Google Communities are getting easier to manage, with new capabilities that make it possible to batch-add individuals and groups.

Assigning collaborate and share

Domain-restricted Google communities, secure ones where posts are only accessible to people within the same domain, can now be more efficiently managed from within G Suite.

Once properly authorised, select personnel can add users in bulk to a community.

For decentralised teams and other domain-sharing organisations, this could be an effective way to manage group allocations, and to accelerate internal communications.

The better-in-bulk capabilities may also make for significant time savings.

Consoles and roles

These days, Communities set up through G Suite are domain-restricted by default. It’s possible to tweak your settings to make your Google Communities publicly sharable, but batch-add is only available on domain-restricted ones.

Even then, not everyone can batch-add. The new ability is not ‘on’ by default. To make it possible for select users to do it, a G Suite admin has to grant the privileges via the Admin Console:

Admin Roles > [appropriate user role] > Privileges > Google+

A single tick next to the ‘Batch-add user groups to communities’ option will give the selected user group the power to batch-add all night long.

Yes, that is a ‘+’ you see there in the relevant settings. Could a stagnate social network be reborn as an internal comms platform?
