I'm trying to find an activity that would allow users to self assign themselves to a group. There is the self-assign groups plug in, but I don't think this will really work for us in a work environment. We create paired working groups, and try (when we do this manually) to pair a techie persona with a non-techie person so that they can work through a techie lab. To do this we need the user to be able to specify their job role and if they consider themselves techie or not.
I was thinking I really just want a simple list (aka spreadsheet type thing) where I have pre-defined the group names and user numbers, and that participant will add themselves to the list and select if they are a techie or non-techie. I have also looked at the Database activity, but this seem waaaay to clunky to be useful.
