Manage your groups

Turn conversation history on or off

If you have the legacy free edition of G Suite, upgrade to G Suite Basic to get this feature. 
This article is for administrators. To manage your own groups, visit the Google Groups help.
This feature requires turning on Google Groups for Business.

You can turn on conversation history so that members can view posts in Google Groups anytime. 

You can turn the feature on or off for each group.

  • On—Members who choose to get email updates can read and respond to posts using Google Groups online, email, or both. If they opt out of email updates, they can access posts online.
  • Off—Group members can access old posts (those added to the history before the feature was turned off) online. New posts aren’t included in the history. Group members who get email updates can read and reply to them through email. Users who opt out of email updates can access existing posts but can’t see new posts.
