Managing global and project user groups

User groups provide an easy way to manage a collection of users. You can use groups to:

  • Quickly staff projects, sprints, and tasks.
  • Set up permissions and workflows.
  • Add and manage reports and dashboards.

Hansoft has global and project user groups.

  • Project groups provide a way to group users in a specific Hansoft project. Administrators and main managers can manage these groups. See Managing project user groups.
