Created units can be formed into groups. Groups are used to unite units on the basis of some criteria.
To work with unit groups, select the Groups mode in the Units panel.
To create a group, click New, fill in the fields of general properties, select units, and click OK. The group will appear automatically in the work list of the Monitoring panel (in the group view mode) of the account it has been created in.
The list of created unit groups is displayed in the work area. Groups are listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each group name, you can see how many units are included in it. The names of units included in the group are listed in the group's tooltip. To quickly find the required unit group, use the dynamic search above the list.
Below is the list of actions you can perform right from the panel.
The dialog box of unit group properties can contain up to four tabs which were described above:
Working with unit groups, take into account some specific features of access rights described below.

Working with unit groups is easy. Deleting a unit group does not delete the units themselves. That is why you can create, edit, and remove unit groups, that is, configure the groups according to your needs. You can also configure automatic editing of groups with the help of the notification of the Modify unit groups type. When the set conditions are met, the unit can automatically be added to or removed from the group.
