    HOW DO I automatically add someone to a Usergroup based on a Profile field?

    For example, if I have a single choice Profile field for, say, "Gender" with possible responses of "Male", "Female" and "Other", is there some way they could automatically be added as an "additional" member to my corresponding "male", "female" or "other" usergroup?

    (A 2nd, related question is how do I update my existing users based in this?)

    Thanks

    You cannot accomplish that without modifying the code.

    What you can do if you don't want to hack the code is make use of Public Usergroups and have your members join the appropriate groups. It will not require Admin intervention and would be an immediate process if you don't assign Usergroup leaders. The public group would be an additional group, not primary, and you would be depending on your members to get it done. Giving them additional permissions/perks like a special username markup unique to each group might encourage them...
