Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Groups API in 4.x

Posted by Dave Manginelli on
I'm posting this question to this dated thread so you folks will know I have at least tried to figure this out!

I have studied both the docs and the code, and I think I understand the basic concepts behind the groups and relational segments models--but I'm still having a heck of a time trying to use the ACS 4 UI to accomplish even a simple task.

I would be tremendously grateful if someone could explain how the  simple "real-world" example of classes, students, and instructors would be handled.  That is, students as members of a specific group which represents an instance of a class group-type and instructors who are members of an instructor group but who are "assigned to" but not members of a given class/group.

I can handle the group/membership part but the "assigned to" part eludes me.
