Hi Cecile, it isn’t possible to immediately upload a structure with specific groups on the site.
 
You’ll need to create the necessary folders and subfolders, and then manage the groups from the site.
 
Hope this clarifies matters!

Hi,

In Administration Console/ Members: is it possible to add a column which displays the Groups where the users are included in?

Thanks

Currently it isn’t possible to do so, I imagine since users could be members of multiple groups at the same time, so it would be a little cluttered.
 
However, I’ll let the dev team know about this to see if something like this can be implemented in the future.
