I'm relatively new to the backend of xenforo, so I'm learning as I go. Everything has been a great success so far and I'm finding it all very easy to get accustomed to. That being said, there may be an obvious solution that I've overlooked for this because of a lack of experience. I'm currently looking for a way to allow moderators to change a user's primary usergroup.
As part of the joining process for the community, users must "apply" by filling out a form and the staff approve it, talk them over the rules and so on before they become a member. The downside to this approach is that we have a lot of staff members to get things up and running and I'd rather not give everyone backend access if possible. I've made some users moderator via the admincp to test the permissions but can't seem to allow them to change a usergroup.
The only way I've found around this is listing them as administrator and giving them the option to manage users and moderators and unless I'm misunderstanding this would allow them to promote other users to staff groups and so on, which is something I'm not comfortable with.
