What are User Groups?

The User Groups function lets you delegate by adding teams and setting permissions so you can customize what your people can do in the back-end of the Martide website.

Note that the User Group should be selected when you create the Interview Stage or Approval Step in a Recruitment Pipeline.

To get started log in to your Martide account. Click on Settings in the menu on the left and then on User Groups:

You will then see a page that looks like this (your page will be empty if you haven't created any User Groups yet but you can see from our example we already have 2 groups, Crew Management and Recruitment):

Here you can:

  • Create a new User Group.
  • Edit and delete current User Groups.
  • Filter your groups either by A-Z or by Z-A by clicking the little pyramid icon next to Name.

How to create a new User Group

To create a new User Group click the blue +Add group button on the top right. You will be taken to this page:

Here you can:

  • Name your user group, for example Accounting.
  • Add Users - i.e. your teammate(s) to the group.
  • Choose if you want the group to be able to override approval requirements in a pipeline. (Explained in more detail below.)
  • Set permissions for the group to give them the rights to View, Edit or Delete features and functions in your backend. To do this, check the boxes beside each function to add rights:

Click Save when you're done. The new User Group will appear on the main page:

Understanding the Pipeline Approval button

Where it says Allow this group’s users to override a pipeline stage approval requirements, slide the button across so it shows as activated:

This will allow users in that group to Override an Approval stage in a Pipeline to let a candidate move to the next stage even if all the required information hasn’t been entered.

How to edit or delete a User Group

On the main User Groups page go to the User Group you want to edit or delete. To edit a group, click the pen icon next to the entry you want to change. To delete a group click the trash can icon:

If you're editing a group, the next page you'll see is basically the same page as when you created a new entry. There you can:

  • Change the User Group’s name.
  • Add or delete users.
  • Use the sliding green button to turn off / on the Pipeline Override settings.
  • Change the permissions for that group.
  • Click the blue Save button when you’re done.

When deleting a User Group, when you click on the trash can icon next to the group you want to remove (see image above) you will be shown a warning asking you if you really want to delete the Group. Click OK to delete or Cancel to return to the page.
