User groups

User groups are groups that combine user properties and include Work Portal users that meet all of them. You can grant or restrict access for different user groups to menus in the Work Portal, rather than having to manage access for each individual user.

 

You can also use Roles to grant or restrict access in the Work Portal. If a specific role adequately restricts or grants access to a Work Portal menu, then a user group need not be created to manage access.

User groups are needed when permissions are more complex and require more than one user component defined, such as skills, positions, etc.

 

The following examples illustrate the possibilities to combine user properties in a group:

 

1. Position: Branch Manager + Role: Commercial

2. Position: Credit Analyst + Skill: Mortgage analysis

3. Role: Supervisor + Area: Presidency
