How To Submit Art To Groups by KovoWolf How To Submit Art To Groups by KovoWolf

This was an older how-to tutorial so I decided to update it with a fresh look and fresh screen captures! So it seems like deviants get a little confused on how to submit artwork to AnthroCommunity or groups in general. Here is a tutorial to help!



F.A.Q
Please Read Before Commenting <3



Diamond bullet by PurgatoryIsGold My members can't submit to my group. Why?
Make sure you have submissions ENABLED. To check this do the following:
1. Group
2. Admin area
3. Manage members
4. Members Arrow left by Drawn-Mario on gallery, members
: Make sure you have the drop down selected to either automatically approved or are subject to vote.. ( choose how many votes and how many entries someone can submit in a given time ( day / month / year ).

Diamond bullet by PurgatoryIsGold Do I need to be a group member to submit to a group?
Depends! Look to see if your group accepts open submissions or if you have to be a member to submit to their group. If you try to submit to their group and aren't able and you are not JOINED in that group, then that indicates they don't have open submissions.

Diamond bullet by PurgatoryIsGoldHow do I change the group submission limitations?
Go to group -> admin area -> manage members -> members -> on gallery, members: and manage your limitations there in the drop down menu for each folder

If you do not see a F.A.Q listed above or in the deviation F.A.Q section, feel free to comment!

I have a question. On the panel it says 'Group you are in' and 'Group you aren't in', it says you can submit art to groups you are in, and Contribute art for groups you aren't in. I joined a group but I can only Contribute art (I got the note saying I was accepted in too). Is it a glitch or is it just because I just joined the group?

Did you ensure that the gallery you're submitting to allows users to submit to it?

That's odd. If the folder is allowed to be submitted to it just wont allow you to submit to it. Not sure where this featured is turned on/off at. You might want to browse your galleries for members ( or mods ) and look for your folder and make sure that it's ALLOWED to be submitted to.

One thing I don't get.. What is the featured folder for? Do only submissions posted in the Featured folder appear in the watch feed of watchers, or all pictures posted in a group?

The 'featured' folder is designed to have featured deviations people can submit to. So for example in my group the featured folder is where I showcase some great works and on the front page you can include this in a special widget : ) So you can use it to display featured art instead of an entire gallery.

Have you closed out of your browser and gone back in to see? Is it a folder that allows submissions?

Sorry to bother you but it won't let me get the drop down, it seems to be stuck on the default not allowed. (The one on gallery members)

It has happened in both groups that I founded, so it could be a glitch?

Sorry, quick question: for some reason, I can't submit to my group (I'm co-founder). I've already checked the admin center thing, but whenever I try to submit something I get a message that says "An error occurred during submission of unknown deviation. - user is not allowed to use this process". Help please?

Is your folder setup to be submitted to? You might want to check the folders 'exceptions'

:iconbeginneratart:

Yes it is. I've checked the exceptions and it says the co-founder can administrate and moderate.

I have question: How can I choose to see the submissions to accept them before they go into the group? Do I need to use subject to vote thing? So many settings! 
Thanks!

Hi!

You have to make this adjustment in your admin settings. So you have to set the global limit to whatever, but then you need to choose how many votes it requires before the submission is accepted / denied :)

Just go to admin -> members -> choose your member class and from there you can make those adjustments

Go to the deviation, on the right hand side you'll see groups. There it will list what groups its in :)

Under messages in the admin panel or if you look at your messages then go to groups you'll see your gallery que. you can accept and deny from there.

How do you take something you ALREADY posted to your gallery and ALSO post it on your group? If you submit something you already posted will a duplicate show up in your gallery?
Reply
:iconkovowolf:
KovoWolf Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2017  Professional General Artist
There isn't a way to submit to a "Group" when submitting to your own gallery. You can submit the artwork after it's in your gallery.

As far as the duplicate question, I'm not sure what you're asking. If you resubmit artwork then it will show up despite having it already in your gallery if that's what you are asking ;)
