User Management​ > ​Permissions​ > Group (General)​


In this window, you define the permissions granted to group roles. These permissions determine what a system user or recipient can do with any group to which they belong as a member. Permissions granted in this window apply to all groups in an Engage system, but are overridden by both group-specific and group-override permissions for this group role.

Each group role is assigned a specific set of permissions by default. As long as your group role is higher than the role you wish to change, you can change the permissions manually in this window.

You can assign this group role to a specific system user in the ​Recipients​ area of Engage. For instructions, see ​Assign a Group Role​.

What can I do in this window?

  • View current permissions assigned to a group role.
  • Grant additional group permissions to a group role.
  • Remove group permissions from a group role.
  • Enter or update the description of a group role.

You can only view group roles that are ranked the same or lower than your own. You can only change permission assignments for group roles that are ranked lower than your own.
