Creating a Group

To create a new group, you must begin by copying an existing one. After you've created the group, you're ready to complete the process by changing its security options as needed and adding members. 

1. Sign in to Group Administration

2. Locate the Group you Want to Copy

On the Group Administration home page, use the Keyword search to find the group you want to copy to create your new group and select it.  

Click the "Copy" button.

3. Fill out the Copy Group Configuration Fields

Name the new group (required), and modify its description as needed.

Select where you want to go to next – back to the Groups Home page, to the Configure Security page to modify security settings for the group, or to the Configure Members page to add members to the group.

Tip: You Can Copy the Administrator - System (-1) Group

If you need to create an additional administrator security group, you can copy the Administrator - System (-1) group and then alter the permissions, usually to remove some of the permissions.
