Managing groups

Groups allow a Platform Administrator to define groups of users with whom files can be shared.

If a user:

  • Belongs to any group that has an associated label, the user can be shared items that specify that label.
  • Is not associated with a label (directly on their user account or via a group), the user cannot be shared items that specify that label.

Groups are not visible to users (unless they have the System administrator role).

To add a new group:

  1. Click the 'Groups' option in the Covata Administration interface.
  2. Click the 'Add new' button and specify the following information:
    • Name: A name to describe the group.
    • Description: An optional, longer description of the group.
  3. Click 'Save' to add the new group.
