An IPS Group on the IPS website is a place where members can communicate and work together towards a particular goal. Group members share a commonality and encourage participation and interest from members. A group can set up forums, blogs, events, and other communication paths for the group members and for the general membership. A group can create custom group pages and allow group members to collaborate on the content. A common question is, "What is the difference between group and a forum?" A forum is a place where members simply post messages about a particular topic, whereas the group is more task or goal oriented and has provisions for more complex functions than simply posting messages.
