Global User Groups

Explains how to create global user groups for emailing reports or assigning version permissions.

Create global user groups to grant version access, or email reports to a group of users.

If you use access rules, create user groups to assign and update access rules to many users at once. Using groups for access rules, also lets you assign access to new users by adding them to the group. See Access Rules Overview and Create or Edit Access Rules.

Before You Begin
