Changing the name of a MCommunity group

Resolution

MCommunity group names cannot be changed.

Here are the recommended alternatives:

  • If you want a group name that is searchable in the directory without the old group being found:
    • Create a new MCommunity group with the new name.
    • Copy the list of members from the old group and paste the list into the new group membership
    • Copy other desired settings from the old group into the new group
    • Add the old group name in the "Also Known as" field of the new group.
    • Delete the old MCommunity group.  
  •  If you don't mind that the old group name is still searchable in the directory:
    • Add the desired new name as an "Also Known as" name in the existing group's entry
    • Messages sent to the new group name will be delivered to the membership of the existing group
