    I was just wondering if it is at all possible to move users to a user group automatically if they have been inactive for a certain amount of time (say a year)?

    Thanks in advance

    There is no built in criterion for that - it would require an add-on.

    Worth noting that the promotion system only works on recently active users, so just adding a criteria for this wouldn't help. It'd likely need to be done as something specific to this usage.

    Instead of a promotion, you can do it manually using the batch update users feature and searching for the specific criteria you want. If you did it every 3 to 6 months or so you'd be fairly well on top of it.

    What time period is recent?

    The cron only runs for a few hours after a user has visited. It will also run when a user revisits (when they create a new session).
