Groups are similar to standard Google / Microsoft Unified groups.
Where as standard Groups need to be added to and removed from manually, with CloudM Automate Groups they can run automatic synchronisations every 24 hours to ensure those lists (group or contact membership) are up to date.
A typical use case would be synchronising access to folders, files, calendars and contacts for joiners/new starters and staff moving around the organisation.
To navigate to the Groups page, select Directory > Groups.
In the Groups table, you can view a list of all the Groups that have been created on your domain, organized using the following fields:
- Name - The name of the Group
- Description - A short description that explains the purpose of the Group.
- Email Address - The email address for the Groups
- Members - The number of users currently added to the specific Groups
Group Detailed Example
Remember you can use the search bar to build a dynamic Group - perform the search you need (either basic or advanced) and then use the Actions menu to Create Group and begin the creation process.
An example would be all users with the tag 'carshare' are included within a dynamic group to they can easily be found or contacted.
The group grants access to a Folder, Google Sheet and a Calendar so all members can manage the Carshare initiative.
For example, you could perform a search using the top search bar for the carshare tag.
