Groups are areas within a Workspace that allow you to separate content by subject matter or audience. Visualize the Workspace as an office building and a Group as a conference room. Although all of your company has access to the building, the conference rooms are designated for specific use cases. Groups generally come in two types.

  • Public for all users to find and join.
  • Private for specific audiences. 

This article covers how you can create and edit Groups.

🔹 This is available on all plans.

🔸 Admin may disable this feature. Please check with your program Admin if this is unavailable. 

Group settings

When creating your Group, you will see two categories: Group details and Group settings

Group details

Group details include branding the Group's membership criteria based on department or location.
