Registration

Open - Members can join with the group code and have access to the group right away.

By Approval - Members can join and will get a message saying "Waiting to Join Group" until you approve their request.

By default, when you first create a group, it will be set to be open to join. After 1 week, the group will automatically change to join by approval. This helps keep your group secure.
