Using Groups in Other Applications

beyond campus groups

When you create a Campus Group, one of the options is "Make Group available in Other Applications" (see Figure 1). This option enables applications like MyFiles@bc to retrieve your group.

Important Notes:

  • If you are updating an existing group and want to continue using your group in those products, make sure to re-select "Make Group available to Other Applications." If you do not, your group will be removed from external applications.

Which applications?

Your groups will be available within the following applications:


After you've made your personal group available to other applications, you can use MyFiles@bc to share files or entire directories with your group. MyFiles@bc is a new Web-based technology that allows the Boston College Community to securely access, modify, and share files over the Internet.
Note: Anyone authorized to use MyFiles@bc will be able to search for your groups. They will only see the name of your group. The members of the group will not appear.
