Creating a group in Zoho Connect.

Creating a group

Groups are an ideal space for teams to work together. With built-in apps and admin capabilities, groups helps teams communicate better and work faster.

Creating a new Group.

There are three types of groups that can be created in Zoho Connect:
  • Open - All members in the network can view conversations and make posts or comments in the group, access the built-in apps such as Files, Manuals, Events, and Custom Apps and request to join this group.
  • Public - All members in the network can view group conversations, post and comment in the group. However, they do not have access to the built-in apps, and only the admin can add members.
  • Private - Only members can view and access the group.
Group type can be changed anytime later in the Group Settings page.

To create a new group:
  • Click Groups in the left menu, and in the new page, click the "+" in the top-right corner.
  • Enter the Group name, description, set the access level (Open, Public, or Private), and add members.
  • To add members from an existing Zoho org group to this one, click the icon in the right end of the Add Members field.
  • From the dropdown, select your org group.
  • Click Create.
Depending on the policies set by the admin, all network members may or may not be allowed to create groups.
