You can create a subgroup under a group you manage to organize users and projects and to assign access rights within Adobe Workfront.
If there are any groups above the group you manage, their administrators can also do this for your group. The same is true for Workfront administrators (for any group).
Typically, however, group administrators manage groups and subgroups. They can use the Groups page to manage their groups and subgroups in one place. For information about how groups and subgroups work within Workfront, see Groups overview and Subgroups overview.
You must have the following to perform the steps in this article:
|Adobe Workfront license*||
*If you need to find out what plan or license type you have, contact your Workfront administrator.
Click the Main Menu icon in the upper-right corner of Adobe Workfront, then click Setup .
In the list that displays, you can see the groups you manage, along with any subgroups they have. Adobe Workfront administrators can see all groups.
Select the existing group or subgroup where you want to add a new subgroup.
Click New Subgroup.
In the New Subgroup box that appears, type a Group Name for the subgroup.
(Optional) specify any of the following information:
|Group Name||Change the name of the group.|
|Description||Type a description for the subgroup. You can type up to 512 characters.|
(Enabled by default) Makes the group active in your Workfront instance.
In type-ahead fields like the one shown below, when regular users search for a group to attach it to an object or to share an object with it, only active groups display in the list.
To streamline this for your users, you can disable the Is Active option for groups that are not currently in use.
You can easily view, filter and group the Groups list based on active or inactive status using this field. For information about using views, filters, and groupings in lists, see Reporting elements: filters, views, and groupings.
|Make this group and its subgroups public||
(Available only if you are viewing Details for a top-level group, not a subgroup.) Enable this option to allow users in the subgroup with edit-user access (who are not administrators of the group) to add this group and its subgroups to the user profile of other users.
For a public group, any user (in or out of the group) who has edit-user access can add the group to the profile of other users. They cannot do this for a private group.
You can edit this option only on the top parent group in a hierarchy of groups that has more than one level. All subgroups of the parent group inherit its setting.
You can assign one user as a Business Leader for a subgroup that you manage. A Business Leader is someone who makes business decisions for the subgroup. For more information, see Business Leader overview.
If the person is not already a member of the subgroup, adding their name to this field also adds them to the group.
For more information, see Business Leader overview.
|Group Members and Group Administrators||
|Search people and groups in the list||If you need to find a user or group already assigned to this subgroup, you can type their name here and select it when it appears.|
