sticky Welcome with instructions
Welcome to the Community subgroup of IMMRSF, one of three subgroups to serve Ithaca Monthly Meeting. (The other two are Announcements and Witness.) All your groups and subgroups are listed at the top of your browser (in the blue band area) under "Your Groups."
It is easy to view messages here, regardless of whether or how you are receiving messages over email. You can choose between several defaults to view the message board . One way is to click on the dark blue button at the top left of the message board default setting is "Topics" which displays only the existing topics:
When you click on the dark blue "Topics" button, a menu appears - "Messages", "Expanded" and "Polls" (top to bottom). Selecting "Messages" lists messages displaying only the amount of text that will fit the width of the window. Selecting "Expanded" displays all messages with full content, the most recent at the top. Again, the display order can be reversed by clicking the "Date" button. Arrows at the top right, when appropriate, can be used to scroll through by clicking the appropriate button. The last choice "Polls" probably won't be used much here but would work the same as the others.
The next button, "Search" works just like the search does in many applications.
The small button that looks kind of like a funnel (can't figure that one out) opens up a hidden menu that allows you to view messages, etc., over a default span of time from the menu or a customized time range you can specify.
A nice feature that is available to you, because I enabled it when I set up this Group, is the ability to edit your message/replies after they have been sent. So if you mess up when you send something to the Group, you don't need to panic and/or repost... you can go back and fix/edit it so that it at least will be correct on the groups.io website. Just go to the message and under the message there is a bar with "Reply", "Like" and "More" buttons. Click the "More" button, a menu pops up and click "Edit Message". Make your changes and select one of the options at the bottom, you can even delete the message all together if you want to. Funny thing is there's also a box to explain how you screwed up in the first place, though I don't really know if any one would notice.
