Manage groups from an iOS device

This page is for administrators. To manage groups for your own account, visit Google Groups help. You must be a Super Admin to perform these tasks.

With Google Groups, you and your team can send email messages and meeting invitations, as well as share documents, using a single group address.

When you add a user to a group, you can easily assign them a role: owner, manager, or member. Their role determines what they can do in the group.
