Hi, Oleg. Would you like a category, like we have for other groups?
@everton137 do you know if we can have subcategories in local groups? for instance, once for each major project (we have 3 in France)
@samgta, I don’t think so. But you can create subcategories on major categories for a specific project. For instance, bellow Open Spending, I’ve created a subcategory Gastos Abertos, which is the Brazilian version. I recommend to do the same or create a new category for a major project, if it doesn’t exist.
Subcategories for local groups
Thanks for catching that @everton137. @loleg as Tom suggests, you should set this up as a new ‘category’ (this is a single ‘topic’ under the local groups category), and then make that a sub category of the local groups category. Then you’ll be able to have multiple threaded topics under your Swiss category.
I’m sorry, I probably wasn’t very clear about that when I explained it initially.
If you’re talking about creating local-groups/okch like okau and others, that’s a terrific suggestion. Please go for it, I don’t have permissions to do it myself. But I have renamed this topic correspondingly
Hi everyone. This is now done. Welcome to your new Swiss category - with love from Australia.
- create a category
- add initial topic text and image
- change topic ownership
then what happens regarding
- setting up the “OK CountryName” badge
- setting up someone as moderator (I think this is needed so they can edit the Category)
- adding one or more people to the “Local Group Coordinators” group
- directing new coordinates to topics on Bulk Invitations, Badging existing members, etc.
Hi folks, can we please have a category for Open Knowledge France please ? Thanks
Thanks a lot Stephen !
