Toggle the switch to Advanced from any part of the community settings to access the Group Based Moderation.

Basic Group Moderation adds an addition to the traditional moderation allowing Group Moderators as well to moderate ideas along with the Campaign Moderators and Global Moderators. Anyone of these moderators can moderate ideas.

Group Moderation Setup

Group Moderation uses Member Profile Questions with the type Single Choice as a base to create groups. Hence, before embarking on the actual setup, ensure the member profile question to be used has the type Single Choice.
 
Members having the same answer to this Member Profile question are clubbed together in one group.

There are 2 types of Group Moderation:

Community Level Group Based Moderation

Campaign Level Group Based Moderation

Strict Approval:
Strict Approval is an advanced form of Group Moderation and requires a two-step approval process before an idea can become Active. It is available upon enabling Community Level Group Based Moderation.
 
The settings for Strict Approval will be visible to the Administrator only if New Ideas Approval is enabled from Community Settings >> Security >> Moderation Settings.
 
If New Ideas Approval is not enabled, the Administrator will see the message shown in the screenshot below. They can click on the word 'here' to access the Moderation Settings and enable 'New Ideas Approval'.

Once the 'New Ideas Approval' is enabled the Administrator will see the Strict Approval Moderation setting.
 
Turning On 'Strict Approval' extends Group Moderation to require two levels of moderation before an idea is made Active. 

Approval Order: The Administrator can choose to either have
Group-Based Approval First: The Group Moderator has the precedence to approve the idea first
 or
Campaign Based Approval First: A Campaign Moderator has the precedence to approve the idea.
 
Once a Group Moderation is setup for a community, the Profile page of the member will show the 'Group' to which he belongs and the names 'Group Moderators'. The member can send a Private Message (PM) to the Group Moderators.
