Yes, in a somewhat round-about way. You can share the calendar with your groupname@googlegroups.com email address and give it permissions to manage the content. A discussion will be posted to the group's Discussion page (triggering any email notifications) with a link to the calendar. Anyone in the group that clicks the link to the calendar will be asked ...

That's a setting that the group owner has set. You can't override that. You'll need to go to the Google Groups web interface to post. (The address for the group is probably in the footer of the email you've been receiving, with other useful information.) The allowed post mechanisms are defined on the General Information page for the group. General ...

Take a look at GroupSpaces - I was looking for a Google Groups replacement for managing a mailing list, and it seems to fit the bill really nicely.

You can access all your previous posts by viewing a post you have posted to previously. Locate your previous post (any of them - search groups for your name/handle/user-name) Next to your post, you will see "Post Reply" and a drop down arrow, click the drop down arrow and select "Show Activity" And there you go, now bookmark it :) *Only the most recent ...

Yahoo! Groups offers much of what Google Groups does. In their favor I like that the calendar is integrated better and you can have (nested!) folders. I moved away from Yahoo! Groups because I found the ads intrusive. (I do miss good file management, though.)

Create a group, from Group Settings -> Advanced - ensure This group is hosted on another mailing list host is checked and provide the email address of the mailing list.

Now, the reply you posted is under review due to the particular Google Group's Settings. Now, you cannot know when it gets accepted (in the same way as we - users with less reputation try to edit a post in SE and get the "until it is peer-reviewed" message. When the edit is accepted, we do not receive any email-notifications nor any inbox message in SE. All ...

As far as I can understand what your problems are... You want to know how long attachments are kept in a Google Group? As long as Google doesn't warn you that the file will be deleted, I think they will last as long as the message they are attached to. Just like in Gmail, attachments will not get lost as long as you don't delete the message they were ...

If you are the owner of the group then do the following: You need to go to Manage → Permission → Moderation permission. There change the Edit other's post and Own Post. Save. If you are not the owner, ask the owner to enable edits by following the steps above.

Direct copy+paste will work, but if you want to make it look like code you'll have to Indent the code using the indent button Select the code block and change the font Select the code block & apply relevant colour. All these should be possible from the Web UI

The easiest method is to enable Also Allow anyone on the internet to post messages As you might guess, this will allow anyone to send messagse to the group without having to be a member of the group. Naturally this opens the address up to misuse as anyone outside of the organisation can email the group. The other option (I'm not sure if this is a ...

I don't believe there is any way you can access the invitation email directly from within Google Groups. The surefire way to get the text is to invite yourself to the group as well. To avoid Google Groups complaining that you're already a member of the group, use a different email address. This is easy to do if you use Gmail. For example, if your address ...

Yes: go to "Email Options" under "Settings" on the "Settings" page. Or simply use the URL https://groups.google.com/forum/#!groupsettings/[GROUP_NAME]/email.

You can use the option Lock replies: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/transition-sfv/3Jdz8DMUaT0/5WIYUiE7P8UJ: Lock Replies - Disallow any replies to topic(s).

(I assume you mean from the web interface.) Unfortunately, no, you can't. (At least at present.) Oddly enough, you can only mark messages as "read" but not the opposite.

Yes. The answer says it all.

Do you know the Open-News-Network? They have Webnewsreaders. Not sure if it's what you're looking for.

Google groups does not support multiple sign in. Because of this, it should use whatever account you logged into first in your current browser session. (The one marked as default in the account dropdown in gmail) If this is not the behavior you are seeing, that would seem to be a bug, since it goes against the information on their official help topic.

While it's not possible to achieve that through Google Groups web interface, because it is by design, you can do it if use your Gmail to keep up with the group. You can setup your group to receive e-mail on every post and the by replying to that mail and changing the subject, will force the group to create a new post. So in both places you can see your ...

While probably you won't be able to do it directly from the Google Group site, I think it should be possible to simply reply to that thread from your GMail, if you have mail notifications enabled. So if at least one of you will do that, then everybody should be able to post again for the next 60 days. Give it a try and let us know.

I found that the only way to "fix" this is from the groups settings, apparently it's a feature. Selecting the last option fixed my problem. You have to be an admin in the group to do it though, but you can always ask the admin to do it for you if you're not.

According to Google, it can't be done. How can I delete an entire topic in my group? We don't currently offer a way to delete an entire thread at once. To remove a thread, you'll need to delete each message one by one, which will require that you either authored the posts or own the group. To prevent abuse within groups, only the author or a group ...

I don't think this possible, you could change the permissions on your Group so that they have to request access to the Group. That way you will know when someone wants to join your Group as you will have to authorise their access.
