Users can be assigned to more than one group, and it is possible for a user to be assigned as a group admin for more than one group.

Use Cases for Groups (Why Would You Want to Create Groups?)

Admin Users can use groups in any way they like, but here are some of the most common use cases:

  • Roles/Responsibilities: Group users by roles (e.g. web developers, mobile app developers, QA testers, sales, human resources, etc.)
  • Teams: Group all the users within a team, even if the users with a team have different roles
  • Geography: Group users by continent, country, state, province, or other geographic criteria.
  • Learning needs: Group users according to what they need to learn (e.g. new employees, individuals recently assigned to an accessibility project, etc.)
