A usergroup can't contain other usergroups.
But it is very useful in management rights.
What will it cost for this development if let's say just three levels?
usergroup 1
        |-------usergroup 2
                   |-------usergroup 3

Would the existing secondary usergroup feature work for you?

You use primary usergroup like "usergroup 1" here, and anything extra given by "usergroup 2" and "usergroup 3" would be encoded on those groups and the groups used as secondary usergroups.

You can also mass-set groups to have the same permissions. There's 2 ways to do that. You can copy permissions when adding/editing another group. E.g. when adding "usergroup 3" you could copy all the permissions from "usergroup 2".  You can also mass-set with the "repeat" button when setting permissions.

I realise it may be a bit clunkier and harder to manage, but it's also simpler. So it's a tradeoff. We can certainly have a discussion if you don't agree :).

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
