What do you need to know?

How to follow the GUI for property groups.

Getting started

VIVO comes with a default set of property groups. You can rename them, reorder them, create new groups or delete existing ones. You can also move properties from one group to another, but that is covered in Edit the appearance of properties.

What to do

From the VIVO Site Admin page, navigate to the Property Groups page.


You can add a new property group, or click on the name of an existing group to edit it.

You can change the name of a group, change its display rank, or even delete it.

When an profile page is displayed, the property groups are shown in order of ascending display rank.

Properties that aren't included in any of the groups are displayed on the profile page as part of the group named Other. This is not an actual property group; it is simply a display convention.

If you delete a property group, the properties that were in it will be displayed in Other, until you assign them to new groups.
