In Snap4City, a group of entities refers to a collection or aggregation of IoT Devices, sensors, IoT (Internet of Things) elements, Synoptics, Heatmaps, MyPOI, Device Models, data sources, Dashboards, MyKPI, etc., that are managed as a single unit within the platform. This concept is pivotal for organizing and providing delegation in access.

This powerful tool may be accessible according to specific roles into the platform you have.
