Que: What are Workflow Groups and how are they different from Global Groups?
Ans: In a workflow you can create logical groups of assignees like Managers, Administrators, etc. as per your requirement. A Workflow Group is only available to tickets for the workflow for which it is created and is not available to tickets belonging to any other workflow. It is useful for limiting the number of users available for selection in the assignee field.
Global Groups are the group of users in your account, you can create/edit these groups using the administrative console. The Global Groups are available at the account level and provide you a way to share resources to a group and that resource is available to all the users associated to the group. You may add/remove users from the group and the shared resource will be automatically be available/unavailable to that user. A Global Group is available to all workflows and tickets.
