Join or leave a group

Regular Users (see "Roles, access levels, and access rights") can join and leave groups, but not create or manage groups. They can join or leave open groups whenever they want. But for restricted groups, they need to send request to join or leave a group and wait for this request to be approved by the Admin and Manager of the workspace or the Group Manager.

Note:
  • All users can access the "Groups" section, view available groups and join groups (open groups) or request access to groups (restricted groups). Hidden groups can only been seen by group members.
  • As a member of a group, you receive notifications communicated through the group and inherit the access rights set for this group. Through the membership of groups, users may inherit sets of various access rights. In this case, access rights are hierarchical starting with Manage as the strongest, and the highest right counteracts all subordinate rights.
