    Is there a way to post an announcement to a group (instead of WordPress role)?
    I want to send announcements to a subset of my users, but don’t want them to be able to reply (as per group messaging).

    I found this out when one of my users thought he was responding privately to a group message and the whole group saw the message. Luckily he was ok with it!

    Thanks

    P.S. What would be really cool is some integration with Learndash, so users in a particular course could be messaged.

    Do you want to set this for all group message so that any message to any group can’t be replied?

    Hi Shamim

    What I would like to do is send an announcement to a group and not allow replies.

    Thanks

    Hi Simon
    I learned something today when I read your post. I use a lot of Groups and use PM a lot for my 600 members in our MC club.
    I noticed that I have set up a lot of groups in the Messanger part of PM. And also a lot og roles in WordPress. Because I used most of the same roles i WP as groups, I lost the focus of the difference.
    In Announcement PM use the roles you have in WordPress, and in Messenger they use the different groups you make in PM

    The difference is huge and I missed for one sending today, because one user have several roles in WP.
    Maybe I explain in a confusing method, but if you would like to see at my site, I will be happy to show you.

    Thanks for your comments Jan.

    Maybe I should be using a message to group, rather than announcement, as you say.
    I understand the difference between roles and group.

    However, what I desperately need to do is message a group, [b]but stop people replying and CC’ing the entire group![/b]

    People think they are only replying to me (and not the whole group) and that causes a whole lot of privacy/data protection issues.

    Please add following code in your theme’s (child theme’s if you are using) functions.php

    add_filter( 'fep_current_user_can', function( $can, $cap, $id ){
    	if( 'send_reply' !== $cap ) {
    		return $can;
    	}
    	if( $can && $id && fep_is_group_message( $id ) ) {
    		return false;
    	}
    	return $can;
    }, 10, 3);

    Thanks for that Shamim.
    I’ve made the change and will test when I send the next group message.
