Groups in MapHubs help you organize layers, maps, and hubs based on teams or project. How you organize your content is completely up to you, you can create as few or as many groups as you want.
A group has members that can collaboratively edit the content of the group. Group administrators can add/remove members of the groups and edit group attributes like the name, description, and image/logo.
Groups do not limit who can view the content in the group, only who can edit that content. MapHubs can be configured as a private invite-only site if you need to restrict who can view content. Contact us for more information
