User groups allow you to organize user accounts into logical groups. You can then apply membership conditions to each group and the permissions apply to all users who are members of the group.
Some examples of groups include the different departments the users work in, the section of the site they are responsible for, and the level of permission they have in the site.
Store each user group under the Users folder in the asset tree. It is good practice to create user accounts within user groups.
