Is there an additional cost to use the Groups feature in RightNow Media?

No—this feature is included with your existing RightNow Media subscription.

How long will the beta test run?

We are currently planning for the beta to run for five weeks from mid-September to mid-October. If the timeline changes for any reason, we’ll update this page and inform all testers.

Who can request to be part of the beta test?

RightNow Media account owners must request access for their organization to be part of the beta test. If you aren’t your organization’s account owner, share this page with your account owner and ask him or her to sign up!

Is there a limit to the number of people or organizations who can be part of the test?

Yes, there is limited space to participate in the beta test for RightNow Media Groups. Once space is filled, we’ll add a notification message to the beta test request form and update this page.

My groups already use a different third-party communication system. Will we still benefit from using Groups?

Absolutely! We created the Groups feature to address some of the shortcomings of other group communication systems. Groups includes topic-specific chat threads, video Bible study sharing, seamless member identification, and no group size limits—all within the RightNow Media app that your small groups already use!

How do I enable Groups for my church?

As of April 22, 2024, Groups is auto-enabled for all organizations. Check out our Quick Start Guide for more information!

I have a lot of small groups in my church. How can I set this up for my church if I don’t personally have time to set them all up in Groups?

We get it—that’s why you can assign a group manager to oversee the group setup process and group leader assignment. This is a great role for your small group or discipleship pastor to take on.

Who can create a group for my organization?

Only account owners and group managers (assigned by the account owner) can create, modify, and assign leaders to each group.

Once Groups is enabled, can anyone start creating groups and adding members?

No—only account owners and group managers (assigned by the account owner) can create, modify, and assign group leaders to each group. Group leaders can then invite group members to join. Group members can only participate in groups they’re invited to join.

Who can join a group in RightNow Media?

Anyone who’s invited can join a group in RightNow Media! Group leaders and existing group members can invite anyone to join a group, though the group leader must approve the invitation.  

You can even invite non-RightNow Media users to join a group. They’ll receive an invitation to register for their free RightNow Media account, then automatically be part of the group they were invited to join.

Who can see my messages in Groups?

The only users who can see or receive messages in Groups are the group members in the thread. RightNow Media account owners, admins, and group managers cannot see the messages unless they have been invited to the thread.

What if I don’t want Groups for my organization?

Account owners can disable the Groups feature any time. Simply click here to go to your Account Settings page on a web browser, then select “Groups” in the left panel and toggle the Groups switch “off.”
