As the number of People stacks in your People view increases, you may want to further refine your organization here. And you can do that by putting people into groups. To access Groups in People view, I'll go up to the top of the view and I'll drag this switch there from People to Group. That opens the Groups panel in the column on the right. The panel comes with three pre-made groups, Colleagues, Family, and Friends. You can use these or create your own groups or make subgroups, as I'll show you in this movie.

Grouping people

As the number of People stacks in your People view increases, you may want to further refine your organization here. And you can do that by putting people into groups. To access Groups in People view, I'll go up to the top of the view and I'll drag this switch there from People to Group. That opens the Groups panel in the column on the right. The panel comes with three pre-made groups, Colleagues, Family, and Friends. You can use these or create your own groups or make subgroups, as I'll show you in this movie.

To add people to groups, just click on a stack and drag the stack to the appropriate Group. So, I'm dragging the Mom stack to the Family group; and when Family lights up in Bold text in the Groups panel, I'll release my mouse. Now if I scroll down, you can see Mom stack here in the Family group. I can add Dad to the Family group, too, the same way. I'll click on his stack and I'll release on top of the Family group in the Groups panel. And there's the result. To make a New Group, I'll click the arrow to the right of the + symbol in the Groups panel and I'll choose Add Group.

I'll give the group a name, maybe I want a group of my college friends, and I can use this as a top level group, or I can put this as a subgroup inside of another group. So I'll click the Group menu here and I'll choose to put my College group inside of my Friends group, and I'll click okay. And now, in the Groups panel, you can see that subgroup. You can add more than one person to a Group at a time. So, if I click on Darla's stack and then I hold the Ctrl key, that's the Cmd key on the Mac, and click on Sue's stack and Jamie's stack too, I can drag all three of those people into my College Friends subgroup, releasing my mouse when that Subgroup lights up with Bold text.

And now, if I scroll down, I can see a separate category in the Grid for my College subgroup inside the Friends group. What if you want to remove someone from a Group? I'll right-click the Jamie stack in the College subgroup, and I'll choose Move To Ungrouped. And that takes her out of that College subgroup and puts her up here at the top, in the group of people who are ungrouped. In other words, those that haven't yet been added to a specific group. I can also Rename a Group. So let's say, I want to change the name of this group, the Colleagues group.

I'll select that group, and then I'll click the arrow to the right of the + symbol, I'll choose Rename and I'll call this Work, and press okay. And, I can delete a Group all together. Let's say I want to delete my College subgroup, I'll click the arrow to the left of my Friends group to access that subgroup, I'll select the College subgroup, and from the arrow to the right of the + symbol, I'll choose Delete. If there were further subgroups inside the College group, that would delete them as well, which is what this message says. I'll just click okay and my College subgroup is now gone; but the people in that group aren't gone.

They've actually been moved up to my Friends group as you can see here. So, as you can see grouping people can help keep your People view organized and it also groups your People Tags together out in the Tags panel, which we'll take a look at in the next movie.
