Top 11 ways to use SMR groups

groups-1Groups are an integral part of using Magnus SMR to the fullest. It’s easy to think of a couple scenarios when you’d need them – teams and clubs, for example. But we encourage clients to think outside of the box when it comes to groups. At the root, groups do in fact, group students. But if you dig a little deeper, they segment students in a way that allows you to use your privileges so that the appropriate persons have access to the information they need, and only that information.

This can also allow you to review a subset of student documents at a single time. Perhaps you need to review just the international student population for a specific insurance form. Or maybe you need to apply a specific requirement to only a certain group of students. SMR groups will allow you to do both of those things. Also keep in mind that students can belong to multiple groups at any given time, so you can sort your students in any number of ways to meet your needs.
