Setting up a Group

Learn the basics and create your groups. Applications like databases belong to a group, so in order to create databases or tables, you must first create or be invited into an existing group by an administrator.

In this section, we’ll cover how to set up your Baserow Groups.

Create a Group

With Baserow, creating a new group is simple, so here’s how you do it. With just one click of the plus button (+), you can create your group. There are two ways to create a new group from the dashboard.

  1. On the dashboard main page click the ‘+ Create group’ button. This button will also be visible on the sidebar.

  1. Additionally, if you have existing groups you can also create a new group by clicking the vertical ellipses icon in the right corner next to the Group name. This will take you into the dropdown for your list of groups. Click the button ‘+ Create group’.

You’ll be required to give a new workspace a name when it has been created. Name the group to represent whatever you are working on, from managing team activities or tracking the progress of a product launch, to project management or structuring internal processes and workflows. It’s helpful to give each group a name that describes its content.

You can rename a group after it’s created or at any time.

When you create a new group, you automatically take on the role of group admin. After you’ve created a group, you can add databases and tables to it and invite collaborators to join.

Note: If you create a new account in the self-hosted plan but you are unable to create a new group, contact the Instance Admin. An Instance Admin in the self hosted instance is the person who set up the instance. When the option to Allow everyone to create new groups is disabled by the Instance Admin, newly created accounts that are not invited as members of an existing group will not be able to create a group.

Rename a Group

This action is restricted to Admins only. Members cannot rename an existing group.

To rename a Group:

  • Switch to the Group you want to manage from the dashboard or by using the sidebar.
  • Click the vertical ellipses icon in the right corner next to the Group name
  • Click Rename Group.
