Groups provide a way to better organize your users. They can be used for Project teams or assigned to all objects (except tasks/milestones) and allow you to direct notes and messages to more than one user at a time.
Users can be organized by department, location, skill set, or any other way you see useful. A user is called a member when added to a group.
|Please note: The administering of groups is only available for User Roles that include 'Manage Users' permission.|
There are two ways to add group members:
From System settings > Resources > Users and Groups
From each project’s Team page (in the Project's left-hand menu)
Creating a New Group
1. To create a new group, go to System settings > Resources > Users and Groups.
2. Click Create group in the groups header to the left, and a New group will be created below.
Creating a New Subgroup
If you want to divide your group into smaller groups, you can create a subgroup.
1. To create a new subgroup, go to System settings > Resources > Users and Groups.
2. Select the group you want to divide from the group list on the left.
3. Click the Create subgroup button in the Groups header, and a New subgroup will be created under the currently selected group.

Each new group will have a default name. Click on the group name at the top to rename the group. The name is saved automatically when clicking outside the text field.
