User Management and Contact List type

Good morning,

If I am understanding this correctly, the User Management is what the Contact List type draws from to populate names.


Is there a way to create different groups within the User Management area? For instance, I'd like to have two separate lists so that I can have two different Contact List types in my sheet. One for each dept.


Also, I'm not quite sure what the Group Management use is.

    Contact list columns pull from User Management, My Smartsheet Contacts, and whoever is assigned to tasks already in your sheet. There isn't going to be a way to limit where the names are pulled from based on which contact list column you are in - they will always pull from the same places.


    Here is the opening paragraph from the help center article on groups:


    "Group Management enables Group Admins to organize their contacts into groups for purposes of quickly sharing and sending information to multiple people. While only users designated as Group Admins under a multi-user (Team or Enterprise) plan can create and manage groups, everyone on the multi-user plan will be able to share and send information to them."
