User Groups define common roles for the users. It is the preferred way to set permissions to the users as managing roles is easier than changing the rules individually for every user account.
After creating a User Group, you can assign it to user accounts from Access Tab.
|Group Name||Group name is identifier for the group. It cannot be changed after creating the group.|
|Display Name||Display name is the visible name for the group.|
|Enabled||If set to Yes, group has been enabled in your site. If No, permissions set by the group do not apply.|
|Permissions||List of all permissions in your site. See below.|
Administrators will find the permissions area especially useful. This is where you can configure exactly what a user will be able to access and do within the administrator.
Here is a quick breakdown of the permissions options and what they enable someone to do.
