This article is for administrators. To manage your own groups, visit the Google Groups help.
When you perform an action in a group such as posting a message, you see that group added to your Recent Groups list, and the number of recent groups typically increases by one. If the number doesn't increase, that means you’ve reached the maximum limit for the number of recent groups displayed for that group type.
Recent groups limits
The Recent groups list displays up to 20 groups in your domain, plus 20 public groups. So if, for example:
- You have 20 recent groups for your domain and 5 recent public groups—The Recent groups count shows 25.
If you do an action in another domain group, the count stays at 25: the 20 most recent domain groups, plus the 5 recent public groups.
If you do an action in another public group, the count increases to 26: the 20 most recent domain groups, plus the 6 recent public groups.
- You have 20 recent groups for your domain and 20 recent public groups—The Recent groups count always shows 40, because you’ve reached the limit for both types of groups.
