Understanding User Groups

User groups simplify the management of Control Manager users by providing a convenient way to send notifications to a single group rather than to individual users. The User Groups screen contains Control Manager groups. Control Manager uses groups as an easy method to send notifications to a number of users without having to select the users individually.

Example: Multiple OfficeScan administrators would want to be informed of an outbreak, even if an outbreak was not a server that was managed by that particular administrator.

The User Groups screen displays the following.
