By creating a hierarchical group, it is possible to hierarchically organize all the collaborators who, although part of distinct operating units, fall within the same logical or organizational group. Specifically, the nested subgroups are particularly effective for differentiating possible ways of sharing or accessing files through classification tags, while the group that contains them will be of particular utility for the settings that must concern all users who are part of the macro group. In order to create a hierarchical group, perform the following actions:
- Create separate subgroups (for example Sales Italy, Foreign Sales) following the procedure indicated in the CREATE A NEW GROUP section.
- Create the hierarchical parent group (for example Sales) following the procedure indicated in the CREATE A NEW GROUP section.
- Inside the MEMBERS area of the parent group, select from the appropriate drop-down menu the groups you want to subordinate to the current parent group.
- Click on SAVE.
- The group thus created now includes a hierarchical organization so that all the settings applied to the macro group will also be inherited from the nested subgroups, while the options specifically applied to the nested subgroups will remain only relative to the subgroup for which they were set.
Note: by viewing the RELATIONS of a group, it will be possible to verify in which parent group the group in question is nested.
