What are groups?

Groups make it easier for admins to manage and interact with members of an organization.  It can be helpful to create volunteer groups with the same roles, qualifications, skills, or even employer. Volunteers can be added to more than one group and you can add subgroups, such as grade level, committees, team, etc.
