Change a Private community to a Public community?

Change a Private community to a Public community?

Is it possible to change this after initial set up of a community?

Great suggestion. I've been looking for this option myself but it's not available.

Yeah, I just setup a few communities that I made Private just because I wasn’t ready for them to be public yet. Would be nice to be able to change them.

Although I could see the potential issue with allowing the owner of a community to take a private channel public after it has been established and members of that community have contributed under the security of a private community.

Maybe just make the feature available of being able to change the privacy setting for those communities with just 1 member (the owner), or no threads.

Yeah we currently do not allow it for exactly the reasons @ryanhefner mentioned. That being said, we admins might be able to do it manually for you. If you accidentally created a community as private that is meant to be public—just DM me with the URL!
