  2. On the Organization profile page, browse to the Members tab > Groups section.

  3. Click the Add group button. The Create a new group window opens.

  4. In the Create a new group window, provide the name of the group and a brief description. Click Submit. The user group is added to the list of groups.

  5. Click the user group from the list view to assign access permissions.

  6. On the Groups details page, click the Access summary button.

  7. On the Access summary page, click the Edit button to adjust the access level for the user group.

  8. In the Edit group access window, set the following. For details about these access levels see Planning user groups and their access levels
