When you have Subgroups (Child Nodes, Clubs, Departments, Programs, Initiatives etc.,) in which you would like to enable others to submit to join your network, or for you the administrator to break out your organization into multiple subgroups of nodes, where each node will have it's own abilities to manage its own events, memberships, impacts, and data, leveraging Custom Fields will let you coordinate all your initiatives, grants, programs and clubs in one place.
In order to activate this, navigate to "Customize", and select "Subgroups" as shown below.
Group Submissions: Enables you to let groups join your network. When this is enabled you have the ability to customize the questions necessary for them to fill out before.
Payments: If enabled, your subgroups will be able to accept donations or sell tickets.
Subgroup Modules: Here, you can hide certain GivePulse features from your subgroups if you do not want them to have access.
Administrative fields (a platinum option): enables you to customize fields to collect about your subgroups beyond the basic fields we have as a default.
