Groups provide a framework for Admins to organize employees by important connections they hold. Project teams, shared interest groups, skill pools, cultural initiatives, and other cross-functional groupings are all perfect candidates for Groups in your Pingboard account. Each Group includes helpful widgets that show what's happening with its members, and any Admin can add or edit Groups and their details.

Head to Directory > Groups and select +New Group to get started, then add details to customize your new Group page:
