The table below explains the options for Self-Enrollment Groups and Sign-up Sheets.
|Group Availability||Controls whether or not students can access the Group after enrollment:
|Name of Sign-up Sheet||Use a descriptive name so users will understand the nature of the Sign-up Sheet.|
|Instructions||This field is optional, and can provide information in addition to the Group description.|
|Maximum Number of Members||Let students know how many are allowed to join. Once this number has been reached, other users may not join the Group.|
|Show Members||Allow users to see existing members before they sign up.|
|Allow Students to sign-up from the Groups Area||This option automatically adds the sign-up sheet to the Groups Page.
