I have a new install that a small team is evaluating for use as an equipment reservation system. I have created a group for each set of resources that should be administered separately (video equipment, photo printers, Spectrometers, etc). I have given these groups permission to Administer resources, groups and schedules. Users in these groups can add new groups but they cannot see these groups or add users to them.

Specifically, is there a setting to make the group creator the administrator of any groups they create?

There is so much flexibility in this application that I expect the permission configuration needs to be tweaked somewhere. Can you help?

I am thinking about modifying the addGroup function in the ManageGroupsPresenter file to include this functionality:

        //Assign the creator as the groupAdmin
        //If the current user does not yet have their own group
            // create a group with only the current user using the naming convention usernameGroup

        //Assign the users group as the administrator of this new group with group management permissions

Is there anyone who has already coded this? Any reason this is a bad idea?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
