What's in it for you
For a user to see the content in a division, he needs to be included in a user group that is assigned to that particular division. By default, the All Users group can access the division and we recommend you to create and use specific groups to manage access.
Simply adding a user group to a division does not grant access to the content of that division. The user group must be added to the specific channels within the Channel Builder before the users will see the content in the available channels of the division.
Note: User groups must also be specifically assigned to the Global division if they are to be assigned to channels in that division. All user groups are not automatically assigned to the Global division by default.

The quick way to awesomeness
- Assign a user to a User Group if you haven't done so
- Assign the User Group to a Division
- Assign the User Group to a Channel in that Division
- The user will now see the content from the selected channel in that particular Division
Do this step by step
- Make sure you have users in your user groups. There's more about that in this article.
- Click the Admin Settings icon in the top menu.
- Click Divisions.
- Open the drop-down list and click the division you want to assign the user group to.
- Move your mouse over the Assigned Groups section and click the Edit button.
- Select the user group(s) you want to assign to this Division. By default, the group All Users is available, but we recommend to create specific user groups. (By country, region, department,...)
- Click the Update button.
- Thus user group has access to this division, and you'll still need to give access to the preferred channels in that division. Click the Content tab and open the Channel Builder. You'll see that no users or user groups are assigned to this channel.
- Select the correct user group(s) and click Add. The channel permissions will be updated. All users in this group will now have access to content in this channel.
