Groups are a powerful feature with versatile uses within xapiapps.

You can use them to:

  • Control the user's perspective / permissions in xapiapps based on roles
  • Assign training paths to users (manually or automatically)
  • Share training paths to the library
  • Tag/assign users based on their branch, department and job position for search-ability and reporting
  • Convey relationships between users
  • Add custom field onto user profiles

Note that groups do not restrict the view of users in them. You need the Organization Structure enterprise app for this.
