By creating Groups within MindTouch, your administration tasks can be completed in a few clicks.
There are several actions you can take with your Groups; adding new users, editing the name, changing the contributor role or even deleting the group entirely.
The Group Panel
Your can find basic information and access editing of your Groups on the Groups tab.
1. Existing group names.

4. An edit link.
5. Users link - who's in this group?
Adding Users to a Group
To add users to a group, click on the users link in the Users column:
This will take you to the user management page with the user list automatically filtered based upon the group:
To add users to this group, change the group dropdown to All Groups and then select the users you want to add to the group. Once you have selected all of the users, click on Add to Groups button at the bottom of the screen:

Changing Group Roles
The previous actions will bring you into the Edit Group panel.

2. Role - here you can change the contributor level for this group.
3. Save your changes.
Deleting a group
To delete a Group:
1. Select the group to be deleted.
2. Click delete.
To confirm your deletion, a confirm deletion screen will appear.
1. Double check that the group you are deleting is the correct group. Once this group is deleted you will not be able to retrieve it.
2. Delete the group.
Once you have done that, MindTouch will redirect back to the groups page where you will see the group has been deleted.
There are many different ways to manage your account. We have covered all of them including adding users with two different methods, editing your group and deleting your group.
