Step-by-step Guide to Creating New Groups

Groups are used for a variety of reasons, but generally they are used to manage permissions and access, or to manage contact lists. COmanage handles basic groups; for more complex group structures, Grouper integration is required.

  1. From the COmanage Registry home page, login and select your CO.
  2. Click on 'Groups' and then 'All Groups' in the menu bar.
  3. On the Groups page, select 'Add Groups', located above the Groups table.
  4. On the 'Add a Group' page, fill in the fields, and click 'Add'.
