Groups - Deleting a group type

This guide has been created for system administrators.

Specific role permissions may be required, including: Group Setup.


The group function in Edays allows users to be grouped based on your organisational requirements e.g. by location, department or team name. The grouping can then be used when selecting subsets of users that you wish to affect for bulk user updates, custom filtering, reports or exporting data. Each group is assigned to a group type e.g. 'Team A' and 'Team B' are groups assigned to the 'Teams' group type.

This guide provides the steps required to delete an existing group type from your system.

Please note: prior to performing these steps please remove users from all groups within the group type that you wish to delete. The bulk user update tool can be used to adjust users' groups - please click here to see our guide.

Step by step guide:

  • Navigate to Admin tools > Admin panel > Global > Group setup.
  • Click the Delete button to the right of the group type you'd like to delete - if delete is not visible, some users are still assigned to groups within this group type.
  • Click OK to confirm the deletion.
