What is a Group?
Understand what groups are in ProcessMaker Platform.
In ProcessMaker Platform, a group is a set of users and/or other groups that have the following attributes:
- All members of the same group are assigned the same set of permissions. Permissions are additive with those configured for individual users: if a group has permissions that group members do not have in their user accounts, those users are granted those group permissions. See Permission Descriptions for Users and Groups.
Use groups to flexibily manage multiple users and multiple groups to more easily organize roles, user types, or other categories within your organization.
The following attributes apply to configuring multiple groups within another:
- Task assignment to the Group Manager: When a Task is assigned to the group manager, that Task assigns to the group manager configured to the parent group. The group managers to the child groups within the parent group are ignored.
