Add a Group - Organize Co-Workers by Job

edited January 23 in Business and Teams

How do I add a group? My co-workers and I have different job titles and responsibilities. My boss wants me to divide up the staff into groups and give them access to certain vaults based upon their job descriptions. Setting up 3 or 4 groups and adding various co-workers to each group (and additional co-workers as they are hired) seems like a good solution.

    Hi @Fox3, welcome to the 1Password Support Community. πŸ‘‹

    The ability to create custom groups is a feature of 1Password Business. To create custom groups, you'll need to be in the Administrators or Owners groups in a team using 1Password Business).

    If you're not seeing that option, it's likely you're in a team set up with 1Password Teams, and that feature isn't available. If so, you can rely on the built-in groups that come with every account:

    Use the built-in groups in your team

    You can then create vaults and share them with your coworkers on an individual basis. This way, each team member can be assigned access to the vaults they need individually.

    Thank you @ag_max

    I changed the "Team Members" group back to being more restrictive in permissions. I then added more lenient permissions on a per-user basis for certain staff members with more responsibility. All employees are members of "Team Members" and a few have been given additional permissions on a per user and per vault basis.
