How do I create a Group?

Note about Group creation: Groups will adhere to an organization’s Message Lifespan. This is controlled by your TigerConnect Administrator and cannot be set as an individual user.

To create a Group on TigerConnect for iOS

  1. Log in to your TigerConnect account on your mobile device.
  2. In the lower navigation banner, tap Groups.
    • Note: If you are part of multiple organizations, ensure that you are in the desired organization where you wish to add the Group by tapping the org selection dropdown at the top of the application.
  3. Tap the Compose button (pen and paper icon) in the upper right-hand corner.
  4. In the Enter Group Name field, enter the name of the Group.
    • You can also choose an avatar by tapping the Add Photo button (red Camera icon to the left of the Enter Group Name field).
      • You can add an image from your iOS device’s Camera app or from an existing photo in your Camera Roll or from a pre-determined list of TigerConnect avatars.
  5. In the Enter Name field, begin searching for specific users you wish to include in the Group by typing their name.
    • Alternatively, you can scroll through existing list.
  6. Tap the desired user.
  7. Repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all desired users have been added.
  8. Tap Create.

Additionally, on iOS you can create groups on-the-fly by tapping the Compose button (pad and pen icon) in the upper right-hand corner of your organization’s roster and engaging Steps 4-5 above. Once all users are selected, enter the message you wish to send to the group and tap the green Send button. The created group’s name will inherit the names of each member of the Group.
