In this tutorial you will learn how to create and manage a group.

There are multiple benefits when you decide to use groups. Using groups can be very useful for reporting, and adding a file to many users at once .

You can assign new employees that are starting in june 2017 to a group called “June 2017”.
You can assign users from different divisions to different groups. “Team Marketing” or “Sales”.

You can create reports on multiple users by selecting them one by one, but you can also select a group and create a report on the whole group at once. 

It’s also possible to add files to a group. This is a lot easier than adding files to users one by one. Click here for a tutorial on how to add a file to a group.
