What are the group types on Workplace?

After you create a group you have the option to choose a group type. Group types help organize your groups.
To choose a group type:
  1. Visit your group.
  2. Click below your group's cover photo.
  3. Click Admin Options.
  4. Click next to Group Type.
  5. Select your group type and click Save.
Group types include:
  • Teams & Projects: Share and discuss updates with your team or project. This group type has an automatically synced chat attached to it, and is closed by default. T&P groups have a group member limit of 250 people. There are no group moderators in this group type, only group admins. Automated group membership isn't allowed.
  • Open Discussions: Give feedback on projects, products or other initiatives.
  • Announcements: Share company events, updates to policies or other company wide announcements. Announcement groups have notifications switched on for all users, regardless of member count.
  • Social & More: Get to know your coworkers in groups for sports, hobbies or other social activities.
  • Learning & Development: Set up a learning space for your company.
  • Multi-Company Groups: Allow people from multiple organizations to collaborate. MCGs can be secret or closed. You can invite people from other companies to multi-company groups. You'll see the option to create a multi-company group when creating a new group.
Note: Adding a synced chat to your group will limit maximum group membership to 250.
