Groups and Channels
Groups and QR Codes
Blerter Groups are a great way to invite unknown team members onto Blerter at once. Groups also coincide with Blerter Channels, adding the groups into the right Channel at the right Permission set. When you add a user group — Medical, Managers, Security for example — every member in the group will be automatically added to the associated Channel.
We use QR Codes to onboard the user groups members.
As a Channel Admin or Manager, you can add, disable, or modify user groups, as well individual members as needed.
It is common for Channels and Groups to have the same names as it is an easy way to connect the two together.
Keep in mind that user group names must be unique. If a name is already in use as a Group or Channel name as another user group's name, it won't be available.
