Group Management Follow

Overview

Group Management allows you turn settings on or off for a group of users in your account. You can also lock settings on or off to force them on or disable them for the group.

The group settings mirror the settings available for the entire account and for individual users. Settings can also be turned on or off and be locked at the Account level. If not locked for the account or group, they can be adjusted by the individual user. Read more about Tiered Settings.

If a user is in multiple groups, an admin can set a primary group for users. The user will use the primary group's settings by default. However, if settings are locked in other groups, those settings will be locked for that user. By default, the primary group is the first group that user is added to.

You can also set group admins to manage the members and settings for that group. The group admin can also see if the group they manage is set as the primary group for users within the group. The group admin does not need to be an account admin or have role permissions to edit user groups.
