Files.com includes the Group Admin feature on Enterprise plans, providing administrators with the added flexibility of delegating user creation within a group to select non-administrators known as "Group admins".
As a site administrator, you can designate a group member as an admin of a group. To do this, simply check the Group admin checkbox for that group member when creating or editing the group. You may designate multiple members of a group as admins.
Group admins can access the group(s) they manage by clicking the Groups icon in the web interface. There they will see the list of groups they can add users to, as well as the current user count of each group.
Group admins can click the name of a group they manage to view the members of the group. From there, they can use the Create user in this group button to create new users within the group.
The new user creation form allows the Group Admin to select authentication methods such as Email signup, FTP/SFTP client root folder, Access expiration date for the user, etc. Note that the group admins are not allowed to assign SSO authentication methods.
As a site administrator, you can allow or disallow the group admins to select the password authentication as an option in the new user creation form. You can set this setting under Settings > Groups > Group Settings > Allow group admins to set the password for users.
Group admins can create users within existing groups for which the admin is responsible. Once users are created, group admins are not able to alter them. Any subsequent changes must be performed by a site admin.
