Group Management Follow


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
