This article provides an overview of how to create and manage users and groups in Tribe.

Create new groups and add users

Organization Owners create new Groups through the Organization Admin menu. To access, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Tribe.
  2. Click on your user icon to access Tribe administrator options.
  3. Click Organization Admin.
  4. Click on Groups.
  5. Click Create a new Group.

When you create a new Group, you are asked to define the Membership Mode for that Group - this determines how users are added to the Group and how the Group's membership is managed:

Invite only

Users are be added via a Group invite link; the link can be emailed or posted for users to follow and join.

Groups only

Users are mapped based on an existing Group membership in the Intellum platform. Intellum groups are added through a Tribe Organization's
Properties - by an Organization Owner. Users may need to log out and log back in to Tribe be able to see the new Group.

When users are added to a Tribe Group, they can then access Tribe through the Apps Launcher.

Group settings

As an Organization Owner, you have access to the Members, Properties, Analytics, and Flagged content of every Group within your Tribe Organization.

As a Group Owner, you have access to these items for only the Groups you've been assigned to.


A listing of the members of a Group - if the Group's membership mode was set to Invite Only, you'll find the invite link in the Members tab.
