User Groups are used to group users into logical groupings. The purpose of the group is to help administrate many users at the same time. A user can belong to several User Groups.
Note: These User Groups should not be confused with Finance User Groups or Resource Groups.
User Group Permissions¶
User Groups can be used to assign a set of permissions for users. This is much easier than granting permissions directly to each and every individual user.
The User Group Permissions screen allows you to assign or revoke permissions belonging to a user groups. A permission set can belong to several user groups.
When users are connected with a user group, they inherit the permissions of the user group. If additional permissions are required for the user at a specific property, they can be granted beyond the ones already granted through the user group. These additional permissions (Direct Grants) will not be affected if the user is removed from the group.
