New Group Wizard

The new group wizard is used to create new Individual and Shared DriveWorks Groups.

The first task is to select the type of group you want to create.

  • To create an individual group select Individual and click Next.
  • To create a shared group select Shared and click Next.
  • To create an individual group based on one of the templates, select the required template and click Next.

For information on the differences between the two group types please see the article Info: Individual And Shared Groups.

For information on the available Templates please see Group Templates for more information.

Individual

To create a new Individual group, browse for a location for the group's file, enter a name and click Finish.

By default, a new group will be created with a single user called Admin with a blank password, which you can customize when creating your group.

Shared

To create a shared group, DriveWorks Pro Server must be installed on the network and the Server Status must be running. For more information see Pro Server Configuration

To create a new Shared group:

  1. Enter a name for the group and select the server on which to create the group.
  2. Set the Default Administrator User Name and Password.
  3. Click Finish.

A two stage security procedure will follow, for the creation and logging into the new shared group:

  • Allow shared Group Creation. When "Finish" is clicked the login credentials to allow shared group creation will be displayed. The credentials for this are those entered by the person who configured the Pro Server. For more information see New Group Creation in Configuration.
  • Log into the New Group. Once the group creation details have been entered the login credentials to open the group will be displayed. These are the credentials set in step 3 above.
By default, a new group will be created with a single user called "Admin" with a blank password, which you can customize when creating your group.
