Assigning Groups to a Project

I’m new to TestRail. I’ve added users and assigned them to groups but can’t seem to figure out how to assign groups to Project. This seems like an obvious use of Groups and frankly, if you can’t do this, what’s the point in having Groups?

Help!

Users are assigned to Groups but Groups are not assigned to Projects. It is geared more toward user function. I think it is to make it more flexible depending on how businesses use Projects and what groups test across projects.

Hi @mvollmer,
with the groups you can grant or remove privileges to more than one user at once.
I didn’t had to maintain it user for user. If new user joined one of the teams, I just added them to the right group. If I had to restrict privileges, I could do so on group level.

Of course this is more useful in bigger organizations having a similar understanding of privileges…
