How do I create a group using the Siteimprove sitemap?
By Sean Needham
Note: Only Administrators, Account Owners, or a custom role with the "manage groups" permission can create/edit groups.
Groups help you to manage your content within the Siteimprove platform.
The Siteimprove sitemap, which shows how your site is divided into directories and folders, can be used to easily create groups.
For more information on types of groups see "What is a group?".
Creating a group via the sitemap
- To create a group, go to Quality Assurance > Inventory > Sitemap.
- Find the folder/directory for the group you want to create.
- Click on the Group icon to the right of the folder.
- Change the group name if required. The default name is the name of the folder.
- Choose if you would like to include pages in the folder or pages in both the folder and sub-folders.
- If Siteimprove Analytics is running on the site, you can choose if the group is to be available in both "Content and Analytics" or "Content only".
- Click on the button “Create group”.
You will be presented with the message “Group created”. You can view the group along with other groups at Settings > Groups. Here you can also change the access rights to the group. Further information on this is available in the article, How do I edit user access to Sites and Groups in Siteimprove?
