I noticed a lock icon where the post button normally is - I'm a group admin and have never seen this before... Any insight??

 

Thanks!

Hi Tonia...does it look like the attached image? If so, I think that lock icon just serves as a reminder that you are posting to a private group. When posting in a public group, the lock icon is not there.

 

If you are seeing something else, can you share a screen shot?

Yes, that's exactly what it looked like - but it wouldn't actually allow me to post (with a yammer file attachment).  Eventually, it allowed me to post but this was the first time that occurred.
