Group Manager

The Group Manager is where you go to add/edit/delete User Groups for your site. If you want different sets of Users to have different permissions, different access levels, or the like, you use groups. The Group Manager is made up of two panes, the “User Group List” pane and the “User Group Details” pane (Fig. 1).

New User Group

The User Group List pane has a list of all the current groups available on the site along with a button labeled “New Group” that when clicked will let you create a new User Group (fig. 2).

New User Groups will show up as a blank group in the User Group Details pane. First you will want to name the group and then select the users that will belong to this new group. You can then click “Save” to save the group, or click “Delete” to delete the currently selected group. Your new User Group will appear in the User Group List pane.

User Group Details

When you click on a User Group in the User Group List pane, the details for that group will be loaded into the User Group Details pane. You can now change the name, add or remove users from the selected group, or change permissions (Fig. 3).

To add users to the group, simply click the check box next to their name. To remove a user from a group, uncheck the check box next to their name.


Each group can have different permission settings. To change permissions, first click the Display Permissions link below the save and delete button. You will then be presented with the current permissions for the selected group. The permission list will be populated with system permissions and permissions associated with each module belonging to your site. To edit the permissions, you would click the –Show — link (Fig. 4).
