Add Users to Group
Users with "Groups: Edit" permission will be able to access and edit groups.
"Groups: Edit - Can Edit All Groups" allows for editing of all groups and "Groups: Edit - Can Edit Subordinate Groups" allows for editing groups where the user is listed as a group manager.

For example, if you are looking in the "Location" group type, a user can only be a member of either Atlanta, San Francisco, or Nashville. They cannot be a member of multiple locations at once.
A group member will receive applicable group notifications, have a link to the group's dashboard under the "Dashboards" tab in their left navigation, and any data they contribute will aggregate up into the group's metric totals.

If new members should be considered members of the respective group from a date in the past, you can select a "Group Join Date" up to the start of the previous month.
Ex. If it's the month of January, I can select a group join date back to December 1st. For assistance setting group join dates further in the past, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you receive an error of, "The join date of the selected users cannot be before the last account activation date of the elected users (date). Contact email@example.com for assistance." it is signifying that a user cannot be a member of a group before their account was added in Ambition.
Users cannot have a group join date set prior to the date their account was activated in Ambition. A User's Activation History can be seen within their user settings. If you need assistance altering a User's Ambition Activation History, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

You cannot have the same user within multiple groups within one group type.

In this example, Aaron is a current member of the "San Diego" location group. The membership update message is to alert you Aaron will be removed from the San Diego location group and will now be a member of the Boston location group as Aaron can only belong to one location group at at time.
