Associate resource pools with users

Resource pools are collections of users what help you manage resources in Adobe Workfront.

You must create a resource pool before you can associate it with users.

You can associate users with resource pools when you are creating your resource pools.

If you create resource pools without populating them with users, you can later associate them with users as you are editing or creating new users.

For information about resource pools, see Resource pools overview.

For information about creating resource pools, see Create resource pools.
