Organizing users into groups

Why it's good practice to organize users into groups, and how to do it.

What are groups for? 

Users can be arranged in groups to make controlling access to your archives and workflows easier.

The Everyone and Registered Users groups are system default groups and cannot be deleted or modified.

Each user in FotoWeb is a member of the Everyone and the Registered Users groups, except for the Guest user, who is not regarded as a registered user.

Default groups in Fotoware SaaS

For convenience, three groups exist from the start in Fotoware SaaS. When creating additional groups, these can be added to one of the three existing groups to apply basic permissions in the system.

All three groups have the Editor license assigned. However, their group permissions vary, making them suitable for different usage scenarios.

Learn more about how licenses and group membership combine to give users the correct permissions.
