Nested Subgroups in EZOfficeInventory

You can now view all your Item Group and Subgroup hierarchies with the tree view in EZOfficeInventory.

Subgroups help define precise categories for all your items so you can look them up based on all kinds of specifications. With EZOfficeInventory, create however many Subgroups and hierarchal levels within groups as you like. Here’s how this helps companies optimize their processes.

  • Since every group can have its own visibility level, you are able to utilize groups and subgroups for different purposes under the same umbrella.
  • For large teams, subgroups make it easier to specify permissions and access. This is useful when User Listings are enabled in the Company Settings.
  • Subgroups make it easier to manage people and control visibility. You can give people different permissions depending on their group association.

Create a Subgroup

  • Go to Items → Group listing page. Select a Group and click the ‘Add Subgroup’ button on the right.
  • A dialog box will appear that gives you the option to nest this Subgroup (as a child Subgroup) under another Subgroup (aka parent Subgroup).
  • To assign assets to groups or subgroups, go to the Item details page from Items → Assets. Here, select an Item and click ‘Edit’. You can also associate groups with items when adding new items in the system. The same method can be applied to asset stock and inventory items.

Visual representation of Subgroups

Nested Subgroups are mapped in the Items → Groups. From here, choose a Group to go to its details page. Here, you can toggle between the list view and the tree view.

Clicking a subgroup in the list view will take you to its page where you can view all the nested subgroups associated with it. In the tree view, clicking a subgroup with a ‘+’ icon beside it will expand it into the next set of nested subgroups.

Please note, nested subgroups do not affect the workflow of User Listings.
