When we introduced the organizer role, our intent was that this role can do everything that a manager can do (add/remove members, meeting, attendances) but also will be shown as organizer on the public facing pages.
In summary, manager can do:
- manage members
- manage meetings & attendances
- manage guests (member can update only the guests they added but manager can update any guest data)
- manage group settings
organizer can do everything that manager can do, plus:
- listed as organizer on public facing pages
- receive messages from visitors
- receive RSVP notifications
Because the organizer role is new, if groups do not have organizer role designated, it will automatically default to managers (managers will be shown as organizer). However, once an organizer is designated, it will be replaced with the designated organizer.
My recommendation is that if you are the organizer of group, you should set yourself as the organizer and use the "manager" role for those who are designated to assist with managing your group on chamberforge. The manager role is more like an internal role that stays within the group, and the organizer is more of a public facing role with all the manager capabilities.
One of our goals for this year is to start supporting groups with getting more guests/members to the group so we saw the need to add the organizer role.
