There are three types of groups that provide different levels of access for group participants.

  • Public Group - Any Scribd user can join and add documents to a public group.

  • Managed Public Group - While documents in a Managed Public Group are visible to anyone, the group's administrator must approve new group members before they can contribute documents to the group.

  • Private Group - A private group is visible only to the group administrator and its members. The group's administrator must approve new group members before they can contribute documents to the group.
