Create a new group - On Premises 6.4

Author-it Administrator

User Groups allow you to set permissions for a group of users who share a similar function in Author-it such as, writers, reviewers, or administrators. After you have created the group, specify who its members are. Users inherit their group's permissions and can have their own individual permissions as well.

To add a group:

  1. From the main menu, go to Security > User and Group Accounts....

    The User and Group Accounts window opens. Click the Groups tab.

    User and Group Accounts window - Groups tab

  2. Click New. In the Group Name window type the name of the new Group, then click OK.

    New Group window

    The window closes and the new Group is added.

  3. (Optional) If you are setting Active Directory groups, select the Group in the Author-it Group drop-down list.
