Read on to find out what user groups allow.
Only the Administrator account and Moderators can create and manage user groups.
User groups allow you to group together a set of users according to a division by service, department, rights levels, etc.
Who can manage them ?
They can be managed by the Administrator and Moderators of each organisation.
Where are they managed ?
Groups can be created, edited or deleted from the Management tab.
Are they dependent on an organisation ?
Yes, each organisation can create, edit and delete its user groups.
What are they used for ?
User groups are used to facilitate the management of access to shared spaces. When a group is added to a space, all the users associated with this group have access to this space. This avoids having to manage access individually for each user.
Moreover, groups can be dynamic : when a user is added or removed from a group, his rights are correctly reflected in the shared spaces via the groups.
Is it possible to synchronize groups from the AD ?
Yes, it is possible to synchronize groups globally or conditionally. This implies that you have set up the connection to your Enterprise Directory option and that you have created a SSO connector.
