Unless you have a particular need to use Groups don't bother with them as they can in many ways add a level of complexity that is not required.
If you are synchronizing users with Active Directory then groups are necessary but otherwise not.
Assign your users to Roles.
Assign Roles to Function Profiles.
Assign Roles to File Cabinet Dialogs and Permissions.
Assigning Roles to Function profiles and file cabinets makes administration a lot simpler. When you create a new user, simply add them to the applicable role(s) and you do not need to do anything more since they will inherit all the necessary rights to cabinets etc.
Remember also, that Rights in DocuWare are additive. Meaning the user will inherit the sum of the permissions granted in Function profiles or File Cabinets.
