Managing Groups

Jennifer Sneider Updated by Jennifer Sneider

All users can access this feature.

Adding Assets to Groups is similar to tagging and provides a useful way to organize Assets that are affiliated with one another. An example could be a category of Assets that belong together, like all the pieces of a superhero costume or all the Assets that make up a specific Set. You can choose a Standard type Group or a Change type Group. You can also create Subgroups/Changes within the Group to further organize your Assets.

Group Index

View the appropriate Group Index to manage all Groups in a Series/Feature/Division/Studio. Click the line of a Group to see all Assets in the Group.

All Assets tagged to the Group and/or a corresponding Subgroup/Change appear in the Group Asset Index. Only Assets tagged to the Subgroup/Change appear in the Subgroup Asset Index.

Creating Groups

  1. While logged in to a Series/Feature/Division, click Groups on the top navigation bar.
  2. Click the orange (+) button.
  3. Select your type from the dropdown.
    1. If selecting Standard, enter the name of the new Group (and the description, if you wish) and click Create.
    2. If selecting Change:
      1. Select the Project from the dropdown.
      2. Enter the Character name (and description, if you wish).
      3. Enter the Change name (and description, if you wish).
        1. To add multiple Changes to the Character, click the orange (+) then add the next Change name.
      4. Click Create.

Creating Subgroups/Changes

  1. While logged in to a Series/Feature/Division/Studio, click Groups on the top navigation bar.
  2. Click the Ellipsis in line with the Group where you want to create a Subgroup.

  4. Enter the name of the new Subgroup/Change (and the description, if you wish) and click Create.
Note: Click the Caret to the left of the Group name to expand the view and see all associated Subgroups/Changes.

Deleting Groups and Subgroups

Note: Studio Managers, Series/Feature Owners, and Division and Department Users with the Edit Groups permission have the ability to delete Groups.

Deleting a Group only removes it from that particular Series, Feature, or Division. Studio Managers can use the Group Index at the Studio level to fully delete the Group.
  1. While logged in to a Series/Feature/Division, click Groups on the top navigation bar.
  2. Click the Ellipsis in line with the Group or Subgroup you would like to delete.
  3. Click Remove Group, Delete Subgroup or Delete Change (depending on the Group or Subgroup type).
  4. In the pop-up window, click Remove or Delete (depending if Group or Subgroup/Change).
Warning: Deleting a Subgroup/Change deletes it from the entire Studio, across all Series, Features, and Divisions.

Editing Groups and Subgroups

Note: Editing a Group/Subgroup affects the Group at the Studio, Series/Feature, and Division level. Only Studio Managers, Series/Feature Owners, and Division and Department Users with the Edit Groups permission have the ability to edit and rename Groups.
