Nested Subgroups in EZRentOut

nested subgroups

All Item Groups created in EZRentOut can be seen on a tree view, giving you a hierarchical view of subgroups. A group can have many subgroups inside it. With subgroups (aka nested subgroups or hierarchical subgroups), you can have unlimited levels of nested subgroups, which among other things can help you to:

  • Since every group can have its own visibility level, you are able to utilize groups and subgroups for different purposes under the same umbrella.
  • For large teams, subgroups make it potentially easier to separate permissions or access. Useful when Multistore listings are enabled in Company Settings.
  • Make it easier to manage people and control visibility. Give people different permissions depending on their group association.
