Enhancement of Groups and migration to the new structure

posted Dec 18, 2015, 7:34 AM by Přemysl Brýl   [ updated Dec 19, 2015, 7:28 AM ]
We started with a simple import of Google Apps Organization Units as Groups in SignatureSatori. There was a possibility to create new Groups and change memberships.

Now, we are introducing updated import of Organization Units that allows you to take advantage of hierarchies.
Each child inherits Signature Template from its parent. You can customize assigned Template on any level. Changing a setting at a higher level changes the setting for all sub-groups that inherit that Template. Custom assignments, however, remain unchanged.

You can also set Signature to users in all groups that are in a hierarchy.

Notes on groups migration

Lets say your Google Apps Organization structure was like this:
  • Employees
  • Managers

Afer import to SignatureSatori you had 3 groups:

With this update we updated existing groups to preserve all Signature Template Assignments and also to reflect new hierarchical approach:
/Root folder

We moved default (flat interpretation of Root folder in Google Apps) under new _custom Group to preserve current Template Assignment to users and also to allow you to take advantage of Template inherinace from new "real" Root folder in the future.  

Also, any groups that you have created and don't exist in Google Apps, are moved under the _custom group.
