Creating a new group

Use the Groups tool to create both top level user groups and subgroups within existing groups.
  1. Click Admin Tools, and then click Groups.
  2. On the Groups page, click Browse.

    The leftmost pane displays all top-level user groups.

  3. Navigate to the user group where you want to create the new group.
    • To create a top-level group, click the New Group icon at the top of the initial pane.
    • To create a subgroup, browse the group structure to locate the parent group. Select this group and then click the New Subgroup icon at the top of the pane immediately to the right.

    The New Group page appears. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.

  4. Complete the required fields.

    Field What is it?
    Identifier This is a name that the system uses to identify the group. Once you have created the group, you cannot change this identifier.
    Display Name This is the group name that shows when you manage groups and also is the name shown to members of this group.
  5. Click Create Group.

    If you intend to immediately create another group at the same level, click Create and Create Another. This creates the group specified and clears the fields without returning you to the Groups page.
