XF 1.5 Adding multiple users to a group


Active member
Hey folks!

Is it possible to add 20-odd users to a group in one fell swoop? Whether through Core or an Add-On? Editing that many users just to tick a checkbox is tedious :D

If the members have a common and unique criterion then you can use the Batch Updates Users function.

One thing that can be easier:

Go to Users > List Users

You will see at the bottom of the list "Show all users".

This is obviously not going to work well for massive boards, but you can deselect all, then maybe use your browser find feature to find the users by name, check the checkbox by each one and then click the "Batch Update Selected Users" button at the bottom.

Then you can apply it to all of those users at once. Would be somewhat quicker, I imagine, than doing them one by one.
