@tdlincoln yes, but not the way you're thinking.
Instead of posting to the group, you'll want to create a new category that only this group has view and posting privileges to.
Then it'll be their forum, in a way.
I would also like something like this for other reasons. We have a sub category where users post questions and we have certain people assigned to receive emails when new topics are posted - they are supposed to then go and reply to the question and it would be nice to be able inform them somehow that someone else (that was emailed) is already in the process of replying.
Ah yes, that is correct! I've not selected an icon since i wanted to do custom images with icons not present in the font awesome collection.
The icons in the font awesome collection are not an option so how can i have this fixed?
