Should it be possible to assign a new User to a Group(s) when using a template?

E.g. We have 'paidstaff' and 'volunteers' as Groups and it would make life a lot easier if it could be done in a single pass. When I try to set Groups in the Template set up it fails to work, but using the Template I can then individually set the Group - its just a bit tedious?

Kerio 7.4.3 build 7813 The manual section 9.1 is a bit inconclusive

Hi, Maurice

Do you import your users from AD/OD, or are they all local users?

Maurice, it will be sad if you leave these forums, you've helped make the community that little bit more welcoming!

As for your problem.

So if you create a template, with the domain in question (It needs to be your primary domain though), you should be able to pre-select configuration parameters for this group and then subsequently any users added to that group will inherit the parameters.

This way, if you import from a CSV file, you can specify the group(s) to which your users belong.

Alternatively, you can edit single or multiple users at a time in the Users screen, as if the web administration were an actual application. You can select multiple users and change global-type information, such as assigned groups. You would click on the first, then Ctrl+click on additional names, you can then right-click on one of these and edit them all; for example to add them all to a group.

Was this what you were after?

Yes, but that's much like below - still performed per User? I've had the groups for some time and very effective they are -

This is the way I currently do it.


I can achieve what I need, but it can be slow in some circumstances when adding say 6 new Users.

Scenario Somewhat contived to show the requirement

Staff are either Volunteers or Paid, so three potential Groups. AllStaff; Volunteers; Paid.

What I want to be able to do is to create two User templates Tvolunteers; Tpaid where quota; access rights etc are pre-defined, and under the Groups Tab to be able to preset the appropriate two Groups (AllStaff and either Volunteer or Paid. This last step is the bit I cannot seem to set

At individual User creation time using the appropriate Template (as above) would be easier than tryng to remember to add them to groups as well.

Now from the Client I can easily send a Group mail to everybody in the mail list or the relevant sub Group

Notes: In practice the Groups are more function oriented than this simple example

Hi, Maurice

There is, sadly, no automated way of doing what you want to do without using AD groups and having them imported into Kerio with your users.

I would suggest that you create a suggestion, if you're up for it?

Otherwise, please take care, and don't forget that we're here for when you install Connect at your new employer! Smile

Thanks Lisa,

My track record with 'Suggestions' is abysmal. So I'll just put up with it.

I've already got a few others using Kerio - so I'm hopeful
