Creating manual groups

You can create manual groups from a node view, a search result page, or a visualization.

To create a manual group from a node view or search result page

  1. Click the Manual Groups icon in the menu bar to display the Manual Groups panel.

  2. (Optional) From the Groups menu, select Show group labels in lists.
    Although this step is not necessary, it makes the operations clearer in the UI.
    To close the menu, click away from it.
  3. If you are on a search result page, select the nodes to add to the new group.
    You can use the select tools: (Select: All | None | Invert).
  4. Click Actions, and select Manual Groups.
  5. Enter the name of the new group in the field on the Groups page, as shown in the following screen.


    You cannot use double quotes (") in a group name.

  6. Click Create.
    The page is updated to show that the node or nodes have been added to the new group.

To add a subgroup to a group

  1. Select the nodes to add to the new subgroup.
    You can use the select tools to help with this: (Select: All | None | Invert).
  2. Click Actions to display the Actions menu, and select the Manual Groups item.
  3. (If the required parent group already exists) Click the entry in the displayed list to enter its name in the Group field (or enter the name of the group manually).
    After the name is entered, the non-matching groups are removed from the displayed list, and the Subgroup field is enabled.
  4. (If the required parent group does not already exist) Create the parent group by entering a name in the Group field.
  5. Enter the name of the subgroup into the Subgroup field.
