Resource groups allow you to provide information to specific groups of users only. You can create an unlimited number of resource groups.
For example, you can create a resource group called Executive Board, and then assign all of the executive board member users to this group. When an executive board member logs into the website, they will then see an Executive Board Resources area on the homepage, similar to the what's new area, but viewable only by members of the Executive Resource Group.
All resource group members also have access to a message board that is only viewable by members of the resource group. The group message boards allow private discussion among only members of that group.
To create a resource group, go to the Administration Area > settings tab, and click the Edit Resource Groups link. Then, fill in the name of the resource group, and click the add button.
To assign a member to a resource group, go to the User Administration area > members tab, search for the existing user, and then click the edit button to go to the edit user settings page for that user. Put a check in the appropriate check box for the resource group that you want to assign this user to, and then click the update button to save the changes. The next time the user logs in they will have access to that resource group area.
