This article provides an introduction to User Groups in Jive and leads to other articles on managing them.
A user group makes assigning and managing permissions easier by gathering users into one group. The existence of user groups isn't visible in the user interface unless you use role badges for the group. An example of a user group is a group that includes users who work in the human resources department.
User groups are made up of members and administrators. Unless they have access to the Admin Console, members typically are not aware that they are in a user group. The member's account defines (at least partly) their access to the application features. Group administrators have access to the area of the Admin Console through which they can manage settings and membership for a group they are administering. Unless they have other types of administrator access, they are only able to access account management pages for the account they are administering.
