Short for “subscription”, a subgroup is for managing membership, not group hierarchies. It allows all the members of a group to be added to, or removed from, another group with a single action.
An example use case for this feature is the review of documents by different teams. Say, multiple tender responses each needing review by legal, technical and management teams. In this circumstance, managing individual memberships for each tender group could become tedious and error-prone. Establishing a discrete groups for each review type would allow teams to be quickly added and removed.
Through the user interface, members of the subgroup can either:
- inherit the same roles and preferences in the new group; or
- existing roles can be overridden by the new group.
