Manage Groups

Overview


As employees join and leave an organization, Admins need to manage their group members to ensure the right people have access to the folders and files they need. They may even need to change the name of a group to reflect a new department name or completely remove a group from Permissions. All of these actions can be completed right from the Users & Groups tab.

  3. Click the Add users to this group button and search for the users you'd like to add. Select their name from the list and click Save once all users have been included.

Manage Group Owners

By default, the first "owner" of a group is the creator of the group. The owner(s) is not necessarily a member of the group. The owners are listed on the details page of the group:

Clicking on the Manage group Owners button opens a dialogue that will allow any group owner or an Admin to add additional owners or remove existing ones.
