Manage the Groups
A Group contains a set of Users. It simplifies the administration of access rights on Folders. Indeed access rights on Folders are defined by Groups.
A good practice is to organize the Users Group by team or groups of interest.
Notice that a User may be associated to several User Groups.
Let's consider 3 Users (Us1, Us2 and Us3), 2 Folders (Fld1 and Fld2), and 2 Users Group (UG1 and UG2) defined as below:
- UG1 contains Us1, Us2 and Us3. It is associated to Fld2
- UG2 contains Us2. It is associated to Fld1
Based on this assumption, Us2 is the unique user to have access to both Fdl1 and Fld2.

rights matrix permits to allow or deny the access of Users in a Group to Folders.

rights matrix uses colors and icons to indicate the specific rights set for a Group on a Folder.
Redcell indicates that the Group is not allowed to access the folder
Yellowcell indicates that the Group is allowed to View only
Greencell indicates that the Group has access to the Folder
Bluecell indicates that the Group has access to the Folder but with specific restrictions
Small icons indicate the restrictions in place for a Group on a Folder.
This matrix is very powerful and visible. As you can see in the previous screen-capture.
Allow access to all Items

Its aim is to permit the Users of a Group to have the right to edit/modify all Items they have access to. It will bypass the settings set for each Item.
