Managing a large number of Groups

edited 05/12/23 in Smartsheet Basics

So we are building out our Smartsheet workspaces and workapps to to allow customers from numerous organizations access to their data, but not each others data and thus need a large, equal number of groups to help manage them.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a means to easily manage large numbers of groups. Can a sheet be created to help manage and deploy users to groups, is there a automated means we could setup using forms, am I doomed to manually plugging in lots of users into lots of groups? I am still rather new to Smartsheet so any advice would be appreciated, even just pointing to topics or tools that may help would be wonderful.

Thank you for your help!

    Hi @TekWriter

    Unfortunately there isn't a simpler alternative when dealing with groups, tracking info on sheets and managing requests by webform would be ideal, but the creation and management of the groups are still manual processes, as is adding the individual email addresses to safe domains.

    Sorry but hope that helps
