Create groups and sub-groups

All users in the project can see the groups that you create. Only the users that belong to the same company as you can add or delete subgroups, or link or unlink objects to a group.

  1. Click Add new group.

    A new group appears at the bottom of the Organizer side pane.

  2. Click the new group and type a name for the group.
  3. To add subgroups for the new group, click Add subgroup.

    You can create subgroups also under other subgroups.

  4. To link objects into a group:
    1. Select the group to which you want to link objects.
    2. Select the objects that you want to link to the group.

    3. Under the group in the Organizer side pane, click Link objects.

Repeat steps 1 to 4 until you have created all necessary groups and added the right items to the groups.

The numbers in parentheses under the group name indicate how many objects have been linked to the group and its subgroups. The first number is the total number of linked objects in the group. The second number is the total number of linked objects in the group's subgroups.
