How Do I Create a Group and Assign Users to It?

First, you must be logged in as the Admin for your book since only the Admin can create groups or assign users to groups.  If you do not see Admin in the top-level toolbar, shown in the screenshot below, then you are not logged in as the Admin.

Once you are logged in as the Admin, click on Admin in the top-level toolbar.  You will be brought immediately to the User/Group Permissions tab where groups are created.
