Single toggles (on/off) each for 'all Push', 'all Email', and 'all SMS' notifications are missing in Facebook, please include them in Groups.io - it would make turning off (or on) all 'Push', 'Email', and/or 'SMS' easier.
but what I think is critical is to have a sane set of defaults, so that the majority of people never feel the need to go mucking about in it.Please allow Owner (and Moderators with appropriate permissions) to set the 'set of defaults' for the members of all and/or each of their groups - not just for new groups and future members, BUT have a grace period (30 days?) after you institute this Notification System reform for existing groups. This will start each groups' members with the set of sane defaults Owners believe is desirable in all and/or each of their groups, and should minimize the amount of assistance their members will need to modify their personal settings.
