Channel Groups

Manage Channel Groups.

Permissions and notification rules can be managed more effectively using groups of channels. Use Channel Groups to organize your channels, very useful when you have a large number of channels.

From here you can:

  • Click Add Channel Group to create a group
  • Click Edit to modify a group
  • Click Remove to delete a group
  • Click the drop-down arrow to show the channels in a group

So how exactly can I organize things with Channel Groups?

Tip: Use dashboard tooltips to see the groups for a channel:

Create or Modify a Channel Group [top]

Click Add Channel Group to create a group or Edit to modify a group.

To Create a new Channel Group:

  • Enter the Name and Description
  • Select the Channels to include in the group
    • The single arrow moves one or more selected channels
    • The double arrow moves all channels
  • Press Add Group

To Modify an existing Channel Group:

  • Modify Name, Description or Included Channels
  • Press the Save Changes

Tip: Use the search box to filter the channel list (you can even use regular expressions):
