You can now add resources to your groups

Rosie Sherry @rosiesherry

We've been spending some time improving groups.

Courtland recently wrote about adding support for creating guidelines for groups.

Now we've added the ability to add resources to groups.

If you are a a group owner you will be able to access this screen. This gives you the option to easily add some links and descriptions in.

They will then appear on the right hand side of the group pages.

Like this the image below.

The idea behind groups is for them to become their own communities within Indie Hackers. The purpose of being able to add links is to make it as useful as possible for anyone who wishes to participate.

Have a think about the people who are participating in your group and look for some resources you think would be useful to have quick to hand. It could be a guides, book, epic blog posts, videos, podcasts and Indie Hacker forum post.

The choice is yours! The more useful you make it the more love from the IH community you will get!

    @rosiesherry I want to understand this right so I don't piss anyone off. Could I start a "Hack Stack" group where I could discuss the product with those who wanted to be a part of it. My use case would be for getting feedback, discussing what features to build next etc.

    Is that an acceptable use of groups?

      Yes, you can. 👍

      I'd love to see some groups like that thrive.

      For us, as long as groups get used and are kept alive, then pretty much anything goes.

          I had the exact same question in mind. Thanks!
