Distribution Groups allow you to group users together in SmartGov. Notifications can be sent to a group rather than having to set up the notifications for each individual. Groups also allow you to assign tasks to multiple users at once and quickly update the users included in the group. *Note: We recommend assigning workflow steps to Distribution Groups as this allows the jurisdiction to easily update the assignee configuration without having to update each individual step.
