      Description

      Private, group based discussions are a common use of Forums across institutions. Unfortunately the permissions that need to be configured for each Forum/Topic are complex and tedious.

      To configure a private group Forum/Topic requires setting all student's (and any other group) permissions' set to none and then to set the specific group to be a contributor. These steps are multiplied by the number of groups. This is a relatively common task that is very complex.

      Would it be possible to simplify the process to "create a group topic" that simply presented a list of existing groups/roles and then assumes all of these settings?

      I appreciate your consideration.
