Group types are sets of authors within the organization that reflect your company structure - its departments or teams. For example, you could separate groups for the different departments or regions of your company, such as 'Sales', 'HR', 'North America', etc.
Groups offer multiple benefits and allow for better collaboration, easy management, and search of authors and courses.
Benefits of using groups
- Group admins have access to all courses of that group.
- A group can have multiple admins making it easier to collaborate within the group.
- The organization owner and admins can search members by a group.
- The organization owner and admins and the group admins can filter and search courses by group.
The main use of the group types is to separate data within courses for users according to the type of the group to which they belong. When entering the setting of a course, you can choose the following option:
Different types of groups exist, such as departments, teams, regions, cycles, courses, domains, etc. This varies between different clients and their unique use cases. According to the screenshot you sent, your organizational tree appears to be built from the different departments, so this is one group type you can use.
Either way, apart from separating data within a course, group types are transparent to the users and are exposed only to you in the admin panel. They are supposed to help you navigate the organizational tree easily.
