How to use BDA Connect – Groups
In order to get fully involved with BDA Connect we recommend joining and taking part with various Groups.
In the top menu of the homepage you will find a section titled ‘Groups’ which will take you to the Groups Directory.
Here you will be able to find all the Groups, together with a summary of the purpose of the group and whether they are public or private groups. Those groups which are public are open for all logged-in members to access. If you want to start discussions or reply to an existing topic within the forum all you have to do is join the group.
In the ‘Home’ section of the group, you will be able to see a summary of most of the latest activity in that group. New forum topics being published, documents added and new members joining the group, are some of the items that appear in the summary. You are able to post an update in this section, however your comment will be eventually superseded by other activity in the group.
Most groups have a Docs section which is further explained here: https://bdaconnect.bda.org/how-to-use-bda-connect-documents/
The Email Options within a group allows you, the user, to change the kind of email notifications you receive for a specific group. You can choose to receive All Email; New Topics Email; Daily Digest Email; Weekly Summary Email, and No Email. If you feel that you are getting too many (or too few) notifications from a specific group you belong to, this is the place where you can change that.
