Group Management

Groups offer Filespace administrators a convenient way to provision resources by combining users and defining share paths in a uniform manner.

Administrators can apply or revoke access as required, assigning group shares throughout the folder hierarchy in read-only or read/write across a subset of users. 

Multiple users and shares can be defined within each group. 

Groups are administered from within our LucidLink client dashboard through the control panel tab.

Locate the LucidLink GM1.pnglogo within the Taskbar to access the control panel.
