Adding Members to a Group

Vidigami Administrators are able to add members to any group. When a new user is added to Vidigami (either manually, through a .csv, or by syncing with Blackbaud or Veracross) the user is added to one group - the full year group e.g. 2021/2022. 

There are two ways you can add users to a group.

User List:
To add a user to a group, ensure the group has been created first. (See How to create a group.)

  • Go to your user list.
  • Click on the square next to each user name you want to add to a group.
  • Click on Add to Group (top right)
  • Type in the name of the group and then click on the correct group.
  • Click Add
  • Repeat for other groups / other users you need to add to groups.

Group Portal:
To add a user to a group through the group portal, click on GROUPS in the admin area of Vidigami.

  • Click on a Group. (If you need to create a group, see "How to Create a Group.")
  • Click Add Members -
  • Find the members you want to add. You can type in their name or use one of the filters. For example, for your Faculty & Staff group, you can filter on User Type - Staff. Select All Staff and add to your group. 
  • After you have selected the members to add, click on the Add ## Users to Group.
  • Wait until you see the green success dialog box.
  • Repeat with additional users / groups as needed.

Group Option from User List:
Add users to a group directly from the user list.

  • From the user list, select the user(s) you want to add to a group. (Tip: Use one or more filters to help.)
  • Go up to the top right and select Add to Group
  • To add to a group in the current year, type in the beginning of the name of the group, and then select the group from the drop down.
  • To add to a group in a past year, flip the switch to All Years before searching. 
  • Repeat searching and clicking on each group you want to add the selected users to.
  • Click on Add.

TIP: To add users to past years (so they can access media in years they were not a part of Vidigami), do the following:

  1. Select the users. 
  2. Go to Add to Group.
  3. Flip the switch to All Years
  4. Type in 20 and select 2022/2023. 
  5. Repeat by typing in 20 and selecting 2021/2022, etc. until you have all past years selected.
  6. Click Add.
