|Groups / Editing a Group|
Designated group managers can change and review group capabilities. Similarly, designated group device managers can manage device related permissions for the groups they manage.
Group managers can view all groups in the Web Console and grant them the View Users and Groups permission. Otherwise, they will only be able to view groups that they manage on those pages. You can have members of different group manage a specific group.
For example, a member of the Charge Nurse group may need to manage the Code Blue group in a hospital, or a member of the Head Cashier group may need to manage the Cashier group in a retail store.
Members of a group with management capabilities can perform any of the following tasks for the groups they manage:
Change all of the basic information such as alternate spoken names, speech recognition features, scheduling options, and the group phone extension.
Specify whether to use the group as a department, enter a PIN for telephony, and enter a cost center ID.
Add and remove group members, change their order, and specify whether the group has only temporary membership.
Change the forwarding options.
Specify a group whose members can add themselves to the managed group.
Members of a group with management capabilities can also use voice commands to add and remove members from the managed group. For example, a member of the Head Nurse group that manages the Code Blue group could say "Add Lin Ma to Code Blue." See the supported Vocera Device User Guide for your device on the Vocera Devices page for more information.
System administrators can designate members of a group as "device managers" to manage the devices owned by members of another group.
For example, a member of the Cardiology Device Managers group may need to manage the devices owned by the Cardiology group in a hospital.
The group you assign to manage the devices of a group can be the same group that manages the group, or you can create a separate group of device managers. The device managers group does not require any additional permissions.
Designated Group device managers can use the Web Console to perform any of the following tasks for the groups they manage:
View the Device Status Monitor to monitor the status of devices currently connected to the network.
View the Devices page for groups whose devices they manage.
Modify Owner, Facility, Status, MAC Address, Label, Tracking Date, Is Shared, and Notes fields for a device.
