Groups drive the User experience within Channeltivity as they are used to grant Users access to content and functionality. This article explains how to edit Group names, permissions, and rules assigned to Groups. 

As an Admin User, you can edit a Group by going to Admin > Groups and clicking on the name of the Group that you want to edit. 

You'll then click the "Edit" button in the top right corner to make your changes. 

For "Manual" Groups, which are Groups that Users must be assigned to manually, you have the ability to edit the Group's name, description, and permissions.

For "Smart Groups," which are Groups that Users are assigned to automatically based on rules you define, you can edit the Group's name, description, membership criteria/rules, and permissions.
