Creating Groups

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. Select New Group.

    New Group

    The Info tab displays.
  3. Enter the user group name in the Group Name field.
  4. Optional: Provide a description for the group in the Type field.
    This description displays in the Groups screen after you save your changes.
  5. Select or clear permissions for the group in the Permissions area. Set permissions individually or by block.
    See List of Permissions for details about each group permission.
