Groups are required for some TU.it services, especially for checking authorizations:
Structure Element Groups (Organizational Groups)
Your structural element (your organizational unit) already exists in upTUdate as a "structural element group" (with all persons in your structural element) and can be used both for calendar release and for mail distribution (Ennn@intern.tuwien.ac.at).
upTUdate authorization groups can also be formed across institutes from any persons entered in TISS.
For example, you need an upTUdate authorization group Ennn.mygroup,
- to share your calendar with this group (the calendar release option for your group Ennn.mygroup is automatically set up a few minutes after creation!),
- to be able to use a functional account (representation of functions independent of individual persons),
- for setting up a mail distributor (using an upTUdate group),
- for the establishment of public folders.
