Creating a Group/

What

Groups are a very important concept within FileWave.  Groups allow us to organize devices and even other groups.  You can think of them similarly to folders in a filesystem.

When/Why

We are going to use these (static/manual) groups whenever we have a need to organize in general or to group devices in some non-programmatic way.  For instance, if we need to deploy an application to random devices throughout the environment based on random license purchases, then we might use a manual group.

How

Creating a manual group is as easy as clicking the new group icon () and giving the group a name (the name must be unique).  See an example below:
