Bug Description

When a group is associated with an institution via CSV file, this is not obvious to group admins unless they are institution admins and can see these groups in Admin -> Groups.

It would also be good for individuals who create groups manually to associate them with a group so that the institution admin can administer them. Otherwise, only site admins can perform bulk actions via CSV.

The selecting of the institution in the group settings should be done via a Select2 drop-down menu on the group settings page to allow the group admin to start typing the institution to which they want to associate it.

If the user is a member of only one institution, the group is automatically associated with that institution and the user doesn't see a drop-down menu but just the institution listed. If the user is a member of 2 or more institution, the user can choose with which institution to associate the group. If the user is a site admin, he can choose between all institutions on the site.


1. This addition does not prevent non-institution members from joining / being added. There is no change to that part as the admin can still control (if they so wish) whether they allow non-institution members to join.

2. If the user changes institutions or a member from another institution becomes a group admin, the association with the institution does not change. If the institution shall be changed, a site admin would need to do that.
