Access control groups are a great way to organize and assign permissions to groups of internal users en masse. Access control groups are most effective when your account has more than one project and you need to give groups of users different permissions across those different projects.

❓ Access Control Groups are referred to as "Groups" within LaunchNotes.

How do I create a Group?

💡 In order to access the Organizations Settings tab, you must be either an Org Admin or Project Admin.

Using the left-hand navbar, go to Organization Settings > Groups, where you'll see a Create Group button.

Once you select "Create Group", it will prompt you to name your group. Make this name as specific as possible to the teams and permissions that you're grouping so that each one is easily identifiable if you need to create multiple groups.

How do I give access to a Group?

Once a group has been created and named, select the 'Edit' button and select the 'Access' tab in that view. Here you'll be able to add your project, as well as the permission level you'd like to grant anyone who can access this group.

How do group permissions work?

Access control group permissions take precedence over individual user permissions based on the following hierarchy (from highest to lowest): Admin, Collaborator, Stakeholder.

Let's take a look at two examples:

Group 1, "Internal followers," has a permission level of stakeholder, meaning everyone in this group will have a permission level equivalent to the stakeholder permission level. This type of assignment is ideal for groups of people within your company that only need to stay up to date on internal release communications.

Group 2, "Marketing Team," has a permission level of contributor, meaning everyone in this group will be able to create and edit releases.
