Data Groups


The purpose of the Data Group Access function is to create and manage and hierarchy that will inform data visibility within the Enterprise level account. Every record created within Safety Management Suite will require the assignment of a Data Group as defined in Data Group Access (with the exception of Company Data).


There are three data groups by default:

  1. Root - Top level of the hierarchy. Users cannot assign records to Root. This level is used to assign permissions to this level, therefore giving a user access to the entire 'tree'.
  2. Shared - Shared is the next tier beneath the Root which is where Company Data lives.  Everyone has, at least, Viewing rights at the Shared level. 
  3. Company - This is the same 'tier' as Shared, however, this is where you can begin to define the structure of your data access hierarchy.



Creating Data Groups

Go to Settings from the menu in the upper right.



Select Data Access Groups.



Select Add New to add a new Data Group.



Select the Parent Data Group (where in the hierarchy this group should live) and enter the Data Group Name. Select Add.



Additional sub locations can be added to create a hierarchy suitable to the need of your company.
