Groups lets you predefine groups of people that you can later select to perform some action with, such as printing reports or exporting names, when you want to repeatedly select the same group of people.


There are 2 locations you can view and edit groups:


1.The Groups View on the People page side view

2.The Groups row on the Edit Person form


In both places the groups view displays a list of all the groups you have created, with checkboxes to show which groups the currently highlighted person belongs to.
