Group permissions & Group management
Table of Contents
In Workspace you can manage individual users and their permissions to specific apps when you don't have many users or applications. To make this more efficient for bigger Workspace environments, you can make use of User Groups and Group Permissions. This way the administrator is able to organize apps and permissions to them more quickly for multiple users simultaneously.
You can include or exclude people from granting permissions to specific tasks. Furthermore, the admin can set the default user group permission which is most suitable for your organization. It’s also possible to restrict specific users from editing and changing their own Workspace by assigning user group permissions.
There are three options for each permission:
Allow is automatically Allow unless you choose Deny for a group in Group management.
Deny overrides everything and is always deny for all groups.
Create user groups
As an administrator, go to Settings > Users & groups > Group Management. Here, you can create user groups by clicking on +New.
By default, the Individual User list is opened. You can add individual users to the Group by checking their boxes and clicking on Done. If you have a big list of users, you can search for specific users by using the search field and selecting the users afterwards.
You can also switch to already existing User Groups which also can be added to the currently opened Group by switching between the group or user icon.
When completed all preparations of the Group, click on Done.
Group permissions can be found under the Workspace admin settings > Users & Groups > Group permissions.
You can set the default state of the following permissions:
- Edit own Workspace, create Personal tile groups and add tiles
- Create apps in App store
- Create Shared tile groups
- Create and manage announcements and categories
- Make user requests
To change the default state of a permissions, just simply select a permission and click on edit from the action bar menu. You can choose between Not set, Allow or Deny.
Group permissions can be found under the Workspace admin settings > Users & Groups > Group management.
Here you can give permissions to specific groups (dependent on the default settings in Group permissions), by selecting a group and clicking on Edit. You can choose between Not set, Allow or Deny.
