Groups are the primary organizational unit for simulating phishing testing. Groups allow you to sort and group targets for testing, import targets from active directories (AD) or learning management systems (LMS), and parse testing data on a per-group basis. The primary group management tool is the Manage Groups page.
Navigate to Targets / Groups > Manage Groups.
The Manage Groups Page
