A group is a collection of enrolled users within a LEO unit. There are four ways of creating groups in LEO: you can manually create a group; you can auto-create groups; you can import a group from another LEO unit; or you can create a 'Signup group'. In this LEO Guide we will show you the steps for manually creating a group in LEO.

To create a manual group in LEO you need to:

  1. Navigate to your LEO unit. From the Administration menu select Unit administration > Users > Groups
  2. Click on the blue 'Create group' button.
  3. On the next screen, give your group a name and a description. You are also able to upload an image which will then represent the group. Additionally you are able to add an 'Enrollment key' to your group, which functions much like a password, and allows you to limit access to the group only to students and staff who know the key. Note: Group enrollment keys must be enabled in the self enrollment settings.
  4. Click 'Save changes' when you are done. Repeat from step 2 until you have created all of the groups you require.
