GroupJive supports a group bulletin with WYSIWYG options, compatibility with almost all Joomla! PMS systems, a Plugin for Community Builder, a series of Modules that enhance the GroupJive user experience and direct integration between Groups and various Joomla! components which then generate their content inside the GroupJive Groups. GroupJive currently integrates with:

+ Community Builder 1.1 stable
+ Community Builder Enhanced

+ JomComment 1.8.10

Groups are based on three privilege levels which determine a users ability to access and join groups:
