Every Dynamic Group is created from a Template that defines how the group filters client computers. Unlimited number of Dynamic Groups can be created from one template.

A template is a static object stored in a Static group. Users must have appropriate permissions to access templates. A user needs access permissions to be able to work with Dynamic Group templates. All pre-defined templates are located in the static group All and are by default available only to the Administrator. Other users need to be assigned additional permissions. As a result, users may be unable to see or use default templates. The templates can be moved to a group where the users have permissions.

To duplicate a template, the user must be assigned write permissions (for Dynamic Group templates) for the group where the source template is located, and for the user's home group (where the duplicate will be stored). See suggestion for improvement inside the example.

4.Click Summary. The new group will appear under the parent Group.
