|Users, Groups, and Permissions / Working with Groups and Departments|
Every group that you create can be managed by members of a different 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 except the group name and the site.
The basic information includes alternate spoken names and other 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.
Maintain the list of members in the associated conference group.
Group managers can use the Administration Console or User Console to change and review group capabilities. Group managers do not have system administration permission. Only a system administrator can create a group, delete it, or assign permissions to it. See System Administrators for additional information.
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 Vocera Badge User Guide for more information.
