On the Groups listing page, you can create groups as well as edit and manage them. Each group’s contextual menu provides quick access to the group homepage and group email. You can also access the options to edit group properties, delete groups, and create smart views. A smart view is a focused look at the Grade Center. It shows only the columns that match a set of criteria, and the view is saved for continued use. When the Grade Center includes a great number of students and columns, you can use smart views to quickly find data. To learn more, see Smart Views.
Editing a group allows you to add or remove members as well as change its name, availability, and tools.
You can allow students to create their own self-enroll groups. On the Groups page, click Group Settings on the action bar and make your selections.
You can delete a group you no longer need. If grade columns exist in the Grade Center for the group such as for gradable group blogs, journals, or wikis, you can retain the columns. On the Delete Confirmation page, do not select the check boxes for any columns that you need to preserve.
