Thank you very much for your reply. Being new to WP I thought for sure this feature was baked into BuddyPress. I have solved the problem with a few plugins around woocommerce and one built for the lms addon I am using with a little wiring up work.
I can’t figure out how to do it with BuddyPress so I am asking for any opinions that could point me in a useful direction. My thought concerning bbPress was that maybe by adding forums I would be able to limit what the Group Leader and Students can see to just that groups user list.
So, my question isn’t how to get bbPress to do this but what way can I do this. Does BuddyPress have this functionality and I need to find some instructions that have eluded me so far? Or, is there a plugin that I have to use or possibly do I have to learn about using the multisite feature or some other method to create isolated groups that the group leader can invite and remove users without seeing other companies/clients?
I accept I may be missing something obvious to knowledgeable WP Devs, actually, I hope it is something I just haven’t found in the BuddyPress docs.
To be clear, this project is still in development and I can use whatever is best for this important and seemingly simple situation.
