User Groups in PublishPress
For larger organizations with many people involved in the publishing process, user groups help keep your workflow organized and informed.
To find the user settings, go to the PublishPress link in your WordPress admin area, and click the “User Groups” tab. By default, PublishPress provides four user groups: Copy Editors, Photographers, Reporters and Section Editors.
