Yet again a complex question…
Would it be possible to automatically send new users to pre-defined groups based on a checkbox choice that they would have to tick during registration?
For instance, we could have a custom field:
Choose up to 3 groups:
 Group 1
 Group 2
 Group 3
 Group 4
and this choice would dynamically place them in the chosen groups?
I’m guessing this is way too complex to do, but if you have any clue how that could be achieved, I’m more than interested!
Or just a simpler way to choose groups, instead of having to be invited or look for groups and ask to join, just a simple display and options to join/leave a group very fast… During registration and from their profile?
Thanks a lot for your time!

I’m really not if an existing plugin can provide this feature. Maybe you could give a look to this plugin:
As this issue is related with BuddyPress, it’s best if you try to reach the plugin authors. They will be more informed and better suited to help you.

Hey! I found a plugin that does this exact job: Buddypress Group-o-Matic. I was reluctant to try it because it hasn’t been updated in 7yrs but I’ve just set it up. I still have to try it with new users though, so I’ll update if it is indeed a good fix!June 1, 2020 at 19:55 #13429
Update: it’s not working. I don’t know if I did something wrong or if the plugin is just too old and not supported.
If anyone has an idea for a workaround, I’m interested!
In the meantime I’ve installed Invite anyone, which is great if you want your registrations to be invite only, and it has extended options to easily invite users in groups, all from the front-end! So it’s not what I was originally looking for but it’s already better than nothing 🙂June 2, 2020 at 15:13 #13452
