Private Groups - Does Moderator Get Notification?

I just created a private group and I designated someone as it's Moderator.  Does the moderator get an email notification when someone clicks the request to join button? Do they also get a little red icon on their user profile pic?


Thanks for the info!

Hi Michael,


Unfortunately, GroupAdmins do not receive notification of requests to join a closed group. The GroupAdmins must manually check for new requests to join.


There is a product idea to request this functionality: Notifications for requests to join a Closed Group

Thanks for the quick response. This is what I suspected was the case but I thought perhaps there was some setting that would allow Moderators to get notified.  This functionality is really very  much needed.   I commented on and kudo'd the page you link to below. Thanks for that link.
