 4. Groups

Using Groups is much like using systems only the intent is to use groups as functional divisions or even monitoring organizers to assign attributes to multiple objects with similar function or even among departmental lines. Note that groups do not appear on the Dashboard. Even though they do not appear on the dashboard, they still help to create additional organizers for monitoring or alerting.
