Adding users to a group and setting group rights

In this topic you will learn how to create a group and add the user your created to that group. Doing so will not only make the process of assigning rights easier in the long run, it will also allow you to set certain permissions that can only be set on the group level, as you will see below.

Creating a group and adding users to it


To create a group, go to the Groups tab in the FotoWeb site administration screen and click on the Add group button. Then, on the General tab, enter a group name and description.

To add users to the group, go to the Members tab and click on the Add button. A new window will open and let you search for users or groups. Thus it is possible to add an existing group as a member inside a new group.

You can also remove users or groups from the group by selecting them in the list and clicking on the Remove button.

General FotoWeb group properties

Users can also be assigned to and/or removed from groups directly from the User Properties page, as seen in the below screenshot. Since every user is a member of the Everyone and Registered Users groups, they cannot be removed from these groups. When users are imported from an Active Directory structure, they are placed in the correct group automatically.


Tip: If you select several users in the user list and click on Edit users, you can use this page to add all the users to one or more groups in a single operation.
