BP Groups CiviCRM Sync

Description

This plugin provides two-way synchronisation between CiviCRM Groups and BuddyPress Groups in a similar way to the Drupal Organic Groups CiviCRM module. For each BuddyPress group, the plugin will automatically create two CiviCRM groups:

  • A “normal” (mailing list) group containing a contact record for each corresponding BuddyPress group member. This group is assigned the same name as the linked BuddyPress group.
  • An “ACL” group containing the contact record of the administrators of the corresponding BuddyPress group. This gives BuddyPress group admins the ability to view and edit members of their group in CiviCRM.

When a new user is added to (or joins) a BuddyPress group, they are automatically added to the corresponding CiviCRM group. Likewise, when a contact is added to the “normal” CiviCRM group, they will be added as a member to the corresponding BuddyPress group. If a contact is added to the CiviCRM “ACL” group, they will be added to the BuddyPress group as an administrator.

This plugin requires a minimum of WordPress 4.9, BuddyPress 1.8 and CiviCRM 4.7. Having the latest version of each plugin active is, of course, highly recommended.
