The group members have all registered to take a workshop I teach. As part of the workshop, they have a forum which has a group that contains all of the registered participants. I can send a message explicitly using the message feature, but when I simply post a message in the forum, nothing happens except that the post appears. This means I have to (1) post the message and (2) send them an email. Seems like more work than necessary.
So, direct question: Will posting a message in a forum automatically send that message to all current group members of that forum? Your answer was very unclear about this.
