Company Groups are a big part of WhosOffice. Groups can be setup to reflect your Company Departments i.e. IT, Finance, Administration etc. and there is no limit on how many Groups a staff member can be in. Groups are also useful as they allow you to set who is in which Group and who can See which Group for example, John Smith is in IT and Finance but can only See Finance.
Create Groups to manage your Staff more easily. Some settings can be set by group and you can also manage viewing across groups.
A Group Type allows you to choose what you can do with each Group within the system.
So you can choose if you want a user to be "In a Group" and / or just "See a Group". Sometimes it is useful to add staff to just see a Group, even if they are not in the group i.e. Management want to see their staff but not be in the same Group.
When you add a Leave Type to a Group, you need to set permissions of what the users in the Group can do with the leave type. For example, some Leave types, like Sick Leave, you might only let people Request only, but not actually see the leave in the Calendar or the Notes related to the leave.
