How do I create a Group?

In a Desktop Browser

To reach the Groups feature, first, click the "Community" tab at the top of the website. 

Then, click “Groups” in the navigation sub-tab. Finally, click “Create New Group” at the top right of the page.

In our Android and iOS apps

To reach the Groups feature, first tap "Community," in the menu or “More” screen.

Then, tap the main Navigation menu (the left-most icon at the top of the screen) and tap “Groups.” Finally, tap “Create New Group.”

Your Group will need a unique name, and a brief description. You may optionally add images for your Group’s icon and banner. Pixel dimensions for these pictures are:
  • Banner:  600 x 200 pixels
  • Icon:  100 x 100 pixels
Finally, you’ll decide if your Group is Private (invitation only) or Public (any user of MyFitnessPal can join). Groups are Public by default unless you select otherwise.

Here is a link to our Community Guidelines. Please note that the section "Additional Guidelines for the Main Forums" does not apply to Groups, but all other Guidelines must be upheld in Groups.
