For example -

Scenario: User A is a normal user and a member of Autogroup A. User A is not a Company Admin or any other kind of Admin. We use the steps listed above to make User A as a Group Admin of Autogroup A. We would now like User A to no longer be a Group Admin for Autogroup A, so can we use 'Remove from Group' option under 'Actions' to accomplish this.

 

  • Will User A no longer be a member of Autogroup A with no access to the group's content?

Ans – If User A is a Static member, then this member can be removed from group and he/she will no longer have access to the group.

 

OR

 

  • Will User A no longer be a Group Admin of Autogroup A but continues to be a member of Autogroup A with access to the group's content?

Ans- If this user is a Non-company Admin user and non-static member can be removed from Group Admin privileges and can continue as group member and if required, he/she can be removed from group as well.
