How do I create Auto Membership rules for groups on Workplace?

You can create Auto Membership rules so that people with specific profile fields can easily be added to your group. To add members by Auto Membership, you will need to be a group admin.
To add rules for Auto Membership from your computer:
  1. From your Group page click on the right.
  2. Select Admin Options and click Group Settings.
  3. Select Auto Membership to add rules for the profiles you would like to automatically grant access to your group.
You can choose the following profile details:
  • Department
  • Job Title
  • Location
  • Manager
  • Start Date
  • Division
  • Organization
Members are added to the group as soon as you click Save on the Auto Membership rules. They will continue to be added when their profiles are updated and meet the requirements set by the group admin in the rules.
If a system admin does not want Auto Membership enabled for their organization, they can turn it off by going to Admin Panel > Settings > Company Settings > Automatic Membership. To disable the feature, uncheck the box next to Auto Membership.
Note: Once members are in the group, they will not be removed from it if they no longer meet the Auto Membership requirements.
