Inviting MCommunity Groups to Events

MCommunity groups are synced with Google, which makes inviting MCommunity groups to Google Calendar events easy. However, it is important to understand that there are some restrictions that exist for group invitations that extend to over 200 people. Below are the differences in how events will handle groups of under and over 200 guests. 

Events with up to 200 guests


  • If the MCommunity group is public, the group list can be expanded in Google Calendar to show all group members.
  • The organizer will be able to see the accept or decline response from all invitees.
  • Changes to the MCommunity group are synced to Google, so events will drop off the calendars of individuals who leave the group.
  • If the MCommunity group is private and you are a member of that group, the group list can be expanded in Google Calendar to show all group members.
  • If the MCommunity group is private and you are not a member of the group:
    • You will not be able to expand the group list and see the members of that group.
    • Google Calendar will not keep up with group membership and the event will not drop off the calendar of individuals who leave the group.
    • You will not be able to view the invitation responses from members of the group.
  • The organizer of the event can transfer the event to another calendar.

Events with over 200 guests


  • The organizer of the event will see a warning in their calendar when event exceeds 200 guests.
    • Note: The invitation itself still goes out to guests. It is only the organizer that will see the warning.
  • Changes to the Mcommunity group are synced to Google, however, events will not drop off the calendars of individuals who leave the group. 
  • The group list cannot be expanded in Google Calendar to show all group members.
  • Group members invited to the event cannot modify the event or invite additional people to the event.
  • Invitation responses will not be visible in the Google Calendar event and the organizer will not receive responses from invitees.
  • The organizer of the event will not be able to transfer the event to another calendar.
