    User group promotions are checked after a user logs in and they haven't been active for 30 minutes. Other than that, you have to wait for a cron entry to run.

    Might be worth making a suggestion to the XenForo devs for this check to be done when a user registers. It may be an oversight as a user's last activity is set to the current time when they register.

    User group promotions do not change the primary user group, they add the member to others as secondary user groups.

    @Brogan is right, just spotted it does do it after registration as a special case.

    Ok i see. So promotions applies for Secondary User Groups as i understood , and promotion not triggered on registration ? how do trigger promotion on registration ? or what cron responsible for it ?

    It is triggered on registration, I was wrong.
