In this article, we’ll describe the process for granting admin permissions within Group Manager.
In Admin Users, permissions can be granted for the entire module by selecting “Group Manager (Admin)” or they can be assigned granularly by selecting “Group Manager.” The following steps are not necessary when “Group Manager (Admin)” is selected.
In Group Manager, you can assign permissions to top-level groups, and those permissions will cascade down to the subgroups. On the top group, click the “Rights” tab.
There are two tabs for permissions: one for groups, and one for individuals. On the Group Permissions tab, click the “add admin groups” link to select from admin groups with “Group Manager” rights in Admin Users. On the User Permissions tab, click “add admin users,” select an admin group, then choose from a list of users in that group.
For both tabs, click into the columns to add a green checkmark underneath the rights you want to grant to the user or group for the selected group. Click “Save Changes” to confirm the changes.
- View Group: This setting allows users to view the group in the list on the left.
- Edit Group: This setting allows users to edit the group settings.
- Edit Membership: This setting allows users to add and remove members from the group.
- Add/Remove Subgroups: This setting allows users to create new groups underneath the top-level group and remove groups under this group.
