Can I restrict posting in a chatter group to just moderators?

Hi Everyone, 

My organization is trying to set up a Chatter Group to send out notifications to a large audience. We want to be able to send these notifications and allow the group to choose how often they are notified (one reason we like Chatter as the option). 

However, we do not want everyone in the group to be able to make posts. Just the moderators. 

Is this possible?

Hi Branden, 

You should have a look at "Broadcast Groups", which should mostly fit your purpose. 

You can read about it here - https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=collab_groups_broadcast_about.htm&type=5

Hope this helps.

Thank you Vishal! Do you know if Boardcast Groups come in the standard enterprise licnese or are they an added cost? Is that just something we can turn on in config?

Documentation doesn't mention anything about cost or licensing, so I believe it's included.

When you create / edit a Chatter group, there's a checkbox that says "Broadcast Only"

Good to know! For some reason when I create a group, the option does not appear. I imagine that it must be something on our backend then, an option that needs to be turned on.
