Groups grant a user visibility to other objects, like Projects, Activities, and even other Users in Journyx. The user's Role determines what they can do with that visibility. This means a Time User will not be able to report on time of other users even if they're in the same Group.
There are two ways to add a user to a group:
User Management is good if you have a user you want to add to multiple groups.
Group Management is good if you have a bunch of users you want to add to a group.
This method is by far faster to add a single user to many groups.
First, go under Management to Users to Manage Users and locate the user you want to add to a group. Click their name.
On the right, under the password change fields, is the Groups field. Here you select the groups you want the user to be in. Hold down CTRL when you click to select more than one group. Here I want to add Rick Sanchez to the Council of Ricks group.
I hold down the Control key on my keyboard and click "Council of Ricks"
Finally I save the page to save the changes. Repeat this for as many people as needed. You can add or remove the user from as many groups as you desire.
This method is by far faster to add many users to the same group.
First go under Management to Groups then Manage Groups and find the group you want to add a user to. Click it's name.
Here we will see the current configuration of the group, what users are in it, what roles can do things to that group, what Projects are in it, etc. These are the rightmost column ( Items In Group ). All of the objects in your Journyx system will be in the middle column ( All Items ).
I want to add all of the Sanchez family to the Sanchez Family group, so I hold down Control key on my keyboard and click the users I want in the group.
Once I am happy with my selection I'll click Save at the bottom. If you select anything in the rightmost column it will remove that object from the group.
