About Member Groups

Groups are used to assign users to Projects and manage access privileges. Many times the only member Group you may need for an Organization is a Group consisting of all Organization Members. Other times it may be useful to divide large teams into Groups to segment them out to different parts of a large website or to designate smaller teams that will work on particular types of issues in a site.

Making a user a Member or Guest-viewer of a Project is a two-step process:

  1. The Organization Administrator creates a Group or Groups and assigns users to the Group or Groups.
  2. The Project Administrator then adds a Group or Groups to his or her Project(s).

Users can be assigned to more than one member Group within an Organization. Multiple Groups can be assigned to a Project within an Organization. The range of options for managing people in axe Monitor is quite flexible and powerful.

Managing Member Groups

to create a group, select the Create a group link to display a modal dialog that will allow the Organization Administrator to create a new member Group.

Note: If there are no existing member Groups, the following text will display on the Organization Administrator's Groups page: "There are no groups in the organization. Create a group."
