Add computers to groups

Client computers can be added to groups. This helps you keep the computers structured and arranged to your liking. You can add computers to either a Static or Dynamic Group.

Static Groups are managed manually and Dynamic Groups are arranged automatically based on specific criteria in a template. Once the computers are in groups, you can assign policies, tasks or settings to these groups. The policy, task or setting is then applied to all the members of the group. The correlation between groups and tasks/policies is described here:

Static Groups

Static Groups are groups of manually selected and configured clients. Their members are static and can only be added/removed manually, not based on dynamic criteria.

Dynamic Groups

Dynamic Groups are groups of clients where membership in the group is determined by specific criteria. If a client does not meet the criteria, it will be removed from the group. Computers that meet the criteria will be added to the group automatically - hence the name Dynamic.
