Adding groups to existing groups

Is there a way to add groups to existing groups to create a sub-group hierarchy? Google apps for work has this and it is very convenient. If it is not an existing feature, I think it should be.


An example where this feature is helpful is for creating a group for an entire company where each entry is another group that contains a specific department of the company. If I have 10 departments in my company and each department has 100 employees, having a group for the entire company would entail 1,000 entries - something that isn't practical or realistic to maintain.

    Hi Frog, groups do not support sub groups at this time but I will submit this request to our Product team. For now, I would have one group for all your employees then separate groups for each department.

    So, if you get a new employee you have to remember to put him/her into every group that would be in a hierarchy. Because there is no hierarchy of groups.


    A bit of a miss for the Groups feature. They are designed to make user management easier
