How do I change the name of a group..so that when joining it in multiplayer the group says Alpha instead of 1-1-A?

this setGroupId["Alpha","GroupColor0"]

1-1-A is Alpha. But you could change the groupname to "Alpha squad". In the groupleaders init line type:

this setGroupid ["Alpha squad","GroupColor0"]

Click on the link for a description of the command.

You would do the same for group. What I'm thinking is you mean something along the lines of having a description for the unit, on the player select screen and in-game? You can add the description to the player when you place them down in the editor.

this setGroupId["Alpha","GroupColor0"]
or, as biwiki says
this setGroupId["Alpha"]
(for arma) does not work for me.
exported to MP and started a session. i get the players showing with their names as given in the description line but the squad name still shows 1-1-a

i did enter the line as the first modification in the group leaders init line and even tried it with this as the only modifier. no success.

question: could it be that this is due to a mod? i only run ACE. i cant really see how that would cause it but i ask nonetheless...

Odd, BIWIKI says something different when i look at it.

_group1 setGroupId ["Assault Squad"]

So try it with this:
(group this) setGroupId ["Assault Squad"]
