  • You do not have permission to create groups
  • You do not have any groups set up


The permission to add groups to Mentoring programs is 'Manage Employee Dynamic Groups' permission under 'Manage User' in the RBP role for Mentoring.

To create groups for Mentoring go to: 

  1. Admin Center
  2. Manage Employee Groups
  3. Click on Create New Group:

    4. Complete the group definition and save your changes.
    5. The group is available for use with mentoring programs.

Tip: Create separate groups for mentors and mentees for invitation-based mentoring programs. Create a single group for open-ended programs when you want everyone in the group to see the program and to be able to choose whether to enroll as a mentor or mentee.
