Allowing Users to Join Shared Groups

I have put several posts on the Openfire area to no avail and it looks like I will have to customize Spark or create a web page to get around this.  I am consulting for a small company where users may sit in one of many different sets of cubes.  Each set of cubes will be a shared group.  When a user sits down in a particular area of cubes, I want them to "check in" by moving themeselves to that shared group and be able to receive broadcasts to that shared group.  However, I don't want to give them access to the admin pages.


At this point in time, the only way to move a user to a shared group is for the admin to do it.  It is very cumbersome because there is no browse funtioncality.  The admin has to look at the user summary page then flip back and manually enter that person into that group.  Not going to happen.


Is there another client that allows this or is my best bet to make an public (internal users only) web page they could all access and add themselves to a group that way.  The best solution I can think of is to have a dropdown list on Spark and select the shared group to join.  Is this possible in Spark or more so in XMPP?


Any information is helpful...
