Customizing who can post on your Minga is simple. Certain users are allowed to post by default but you can toggle this however you want. Owners and Managers are always allowed to post to the main feed and comment by default but this feature can be changed for every other user.

A join code makes it easy for new users to join your Minga without having to be added by an administrator. Users who add themselves to your Minga by Join Code can be either Students or Parents. Remember to be careful with your code as anyone with access can join your Minga. If you need to change your join code for any reason you can click "Create new code" to populate a new one. Keep in mind that this will deactivate your old join code.
