Gruops Administration is part of the Administration section of Digimind. You will only have access to this part of the platform if you have administrator user rights.
Groups are useful for quickly sharing pulished information, setting access rights for folders, and agents. The Groups Administration tab lets you do the following:
- Create, edit and delete groups
- See the existing members of a group
- Assign users to groups
When you open the page you will see:
You can see the groups that exist and the number of members.
When you click on the name of the group (underlined in blue) or on the yellow pencil to the right of the screen you will be able to edit the group.
The people icon on the right of the screen lets you see the group members.
The red cross will delete the group (but not the users) from your Digimind platform.
