Access Groups for Collabspace

I think it would be beneficial to be able to create groups of users and be able to apply them to multiple Collabspaces. As of now it's my understanding that you must go in and create a group within that Collabspace to give them access. However, when going to a different Collabspace if I want to give the same group of users access to the second Collabspace, I must go in and re create the group and re add the members. It would be nice if the group is saved in a general "users" area and can just be selected rather than having to be recreated.

  • You can create the Group in the Users & Groups area of the Admin tab.  You should then be able to add that group to multiple CollabSpaces.

  • Maleea is correct, you can set up an External Group and give access to multiple ColabSpaces that way.

    That having been said, I have NO idea why CollabSpace groups are treated as a whole different kind of group, completely inaccessible through the admin side.  It would be very helpful to be able to give access to a new CollabSpace to a CollabSpace group created earlier.  Does anyone know why CollabSpace groups are handled differently from other external groups?
