Creating Groups

How to Create Groups | Create user groups and assign permissions to each group.


Users belong to at least one user group. Administrators create and assign permissions to user groups. Each group member inherits the set of permissions assigned to their user group.

To create a group:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Users/Groups > Groups.
  2. Click New Group. The Info tab displays.

  3. Enter the user group name in the Group Name field.
  4. Optional: In the Type field, provide a description of the group. This description displays in the Groups view after saving your changes.
  5. In the Permissions area, select or clear permissions for the group. Enable permissions individually or by block. See List of Permissions for details about each permission.
