Hi. I see that you can share video's, posts, photo's with the flexible (Easy profile) groups for social communities. Is it also possible to share documents like pdf's or docx with people in the group ?

Document management via Joomla groups is less flexible because those groups have to be created by a system administrator. And this Easy Profile groups look much more what we need, because you can give a representative the permission to edit a group, instead of making him superadmin on the website and change the ACL. (please correct me if I am wrong)

Or can this be only achieved in Docman in a secure way ?

sorry for late reply,

unfortunately Social Network plugin allow you to upload documents only in a topic, so for your uses case you need to create a Topic related to the Group and upload your document. Of course this is not a fast and easy way.

About Docman, probably this is the best way because it is dedicated component designed to share files.
