On the Groups page, you can access All Groups, Groups Sets, and All Users. You also can:

  • Import and export groups and group memberships.
  • Sort columns, perform bulk actions for deleting groups, and create Grade Center smart views for one or more groups.
  • Optionally, manage tool availability for all groups.

View and Bulk Options

The ability to see the columns for the groups tools is controlled by the View Options drop-down list, so you may not see all of these columns when you first access the groups tool.

After you create groups, you have the option to make tools available or unavailable. Click the check mark in a tool's column to make it unavailable—an X appears. Click the X in a tool's column to make it available—a check mark appears.

With the Bulk Actions drop-down list on the action bar, you can select groups for deletion or create smart views in the Grade Center for each group. A smart view is a focused look at the Grade Center. It shows only the columns that match a set of criteria, and the view is saved for continued use. When the Grade Center includes a great number of students and columns, you can use smart views to quickly find data. To learn more, see Smart Views.

All Users Page

On the All Users page, you can view which groups students belong to, search for users, add multiple users to a group, and delete users from groups.
