Who is this article for?
You may wish to add additional Group Types to your WorkRite system if your organisation is split into different functions. As a standard your Group Types will show as Course Group, Department Group and Location Group, but you can add other types if this would suit your organisation.
To add Group Types, first go to the Management System and select Group Types from the menu on the left
This will open up a new page where you can add the Name of the Group and Description (the description can be the same as the name)
You will see 4 tick boxes here:
Assessment Location - Checking this box will mean a user can complete an assessment under this Group Type
Do not send emails to Group Members - This means that users in these Group Type Groups will not receive any automatic emails such as reminders or schedules.
All Managers in the company can add people to this group - Anyone who is a manager can add a user to this group, however this does not necessarily mean the manager will be able to see the users once this is done, unless they are a manager of that particular Group.
Language Group Type - This will mean you can licence the different languages to the groups within this Group Type
It is down to you as an organisation how these are set. You don't necessarily need to check any of these options but they are available to you if required.
Once you are happy with the details select Save Changes. This group type will now appear under the Group Types tab. You will now be able to create Groups within this Group Type by following the instructions in article Creating A Group.
