Server Administrator - Group management

In the Group management pane of the Server administrator, you manage user groups. To allow a user anything to do on the memoQ TMS: grant privileges and permissions to a group, and add the user to the group. There are a number of built-in groups that have privileges that no other groups can have. Members of groups can use resources (translation memories, term bases, etc.) and projects on the memoQ TMS - if the group was granted access.

You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage a memoQ TMS or a memoQ TMS cloud.

You can manage the server only if you are a member of the Project managers or Administrators group in the memoQ TMS. To change most settings, you must be a member of the Administrators group.
