BuddyPress Group-O-Matic automatically adds members to groups based on extended profile field responses.

== Description ==

#### What is Group-O-Matic?

Group-O-Matic is an extension of the BuddyPress Extended Profile component, and is configured from the
extended profile Edit Field screen.


> *If you are anxious to try it out, go to the fully functional demo at*

This plugin is different than other plugins with similar functionality in two very big ways:

1. It does not require any additional database tables, nor does it modify any of the existing tables.
1. The decision to match a member to a group can be based on their responses to extended profile fields.

The major features are:

* Match groups using their Name, Slug, or ID
* Match groups based on member response data using a flexible macro.
* Add members to a specific group based on a Yes/No type of field.
* Toggle automatic joining on/off without losing your settings.

A [pro version]( is available which adds:

* Force Edit Profile - members can't navigate the site unless their profile is complete.
* Group Activity Tab - an additional tab is added to the activity stream under which only activity for the matching group is displayed.
* Wildcard Pattern Matching - supports using meta-characters like: *, ?, [abc]
* PCRE Pattern Matching - for absolute control over the matching algorithm.
* Premium Support - get professional support directly from the plugin's author.

You can see all of Group-O-Matic's features in action by watching the [demo video](
