How Can I Create Groups in My Console?
In your KnowBe4 console, go to the Users tab. Then select the Groups subtab. To create a new group, click the + Create New Group button. The following page will open:
- Group Name: Set a name to easily identify the group in the future. The group name can be 2-64 characters long, including spaces.
- Security Roles (optional): Select a set of Security Roles you would like to apply to the users of this group. See our Security Roles article for more information.
- Make this a Smart Group (optional): Platinum/Diamond accounts will have the option to create a Smart Group. Smart Groups are automatically-populated user groups based on specific criteria. Users cannot be manually added to or removed from Smart Groups. Learn more about Smart Groups here.
- Set Risk Booster(optional): Set a specific risk booster for users in this group. See our Risk Boosters Guide for more information.
Once you've entered the details of your choosing, click Create Group.
