Group Types


This helpsheet explains group types and what they are used for


Group types are a way of allowing several groups (i.e. classes) to be given the same label. This is useful in multi form entries so that a year with two or more groups (classes) can be given the same label.

Click + Add Group Type in the top blue toolbar

Enter a name and click Add Group Type

Assign Groups to a Group Type

Click on Groups
