An Advanced user is able to see all the groups on the network. Even the groups associated to a campus as well as private/secret groups. The Advanced User must still "Request Membership" for the private/secret groups to have access.
A Normal user associated to a campus will only be able to see the groups that are part of the campus, plus the groups that are not associated to an campuses on the network. They will also need to "Request Membership" for private/secret groups that are part of the campus when Uploading a user via CSV or API. We allow you to set the rights of what groups and campuses the user can see.You are able to do this by setting "showAllGroups" function in the CSV/API to a 0 or 1.
- 0=only allows the user to see the groups that are associated to the campus or are not associated to any campuses
- 1=allows the user to see all the groups on the network whether they are part of a campus or not.

If a user already exists in the CivicReady system you can change the rights of the user from Normal User to Advance User via the web. This is done at the Network level by going to Admin Settings and under Users expand "View/edit Groups". you will see the the option to check off "User can view all groups(private and secret)"
