!Road Map

!!Group Administration:
* Content Type Selection — group admins can select which content types group members can create/use in their group (blogs, maps, wiki pages, etc)
* Per Content Item Permissions – group admins can designate if content within public content groups is private and public - so that access can be limited on per content item basis
