    TIP: When determining which Groups a user should be in, it's important to consider the Role and content access you would like them to have, Roles and Collections are conferred at the Group level.

    1. For example, a Marketing Manager could be in a "Marketing Experts Group" as this would give them access to the Marketing Collection and the Author role in that Collection, this reflects their responsibilities in the company.

  5. Type the name of a Group you would like to add the user to and press enter to add them, or click the group name with your mouse.

    TIP: Users can be in as many Groups as you would like, so you can continue adding them to Groups as needed!

    Whoops. Picked the wrong Group? Simply click the 'x' on the Group to remove the user from that Group.
