Managing Groups

Creating a new group

Groups in Synergy help you administer team members in different applications. Permissions are granted to these groups within the specific application. e.g. please refer to Chemaxon Assay Documentation.

You can create groups (to be used later by your applications in order to manage your projects) as a team admin. Login to your team workspace, and select Groups:

By default, there are three predefined groups: TEAM_ADMIN, USER and EXTERNAL. These represent different rights in different application, for more detail please refer to the specific application's documentation.

You can create a new group by selecting the Create new group option. These groups need to be created by application admins in the respective applications.

You can only add team members to a group. If you cannot find someone you'd like to add to your group in the drop down list, make sure that you added them previously as a team member.

You can create a group and keep it empty for later use.

Please note that the TEAM_ADMIN group is an exception, it can never be empty and it cannot be deleted either.

Editing a group

If you want to add, remove users from groups, select the down arrow key to expand its view:

If you make any changes, the Save changes button will become active. Once your changes are saved, it will turn inactive again.

You can also delete the group from here.

Please note that the TEAM_ADMIN group is an exception, it can neither be empty, nor can it be deleted.
