The Refine Results form in the Groups sidebar

Use the Refine Results form to search for groups. The form returns matching results in the Groups grid. The remaining grid items are available, but hidden. To restore the hidden items, click Reset or select All in the refinement lists you are using.

The Groups grid displays all groups associated with each Manager connected to the console. If the same group is configured for more than one Manager, it appears in the grid multiple times—once for each associated Manager. Use the Refine Results form to apply filters to the Groups grid to reduce the number of displayed groups.

When you select an option in the Refine Results pane, the grid refreshes to only display items that match your selected refinement options. The remaining items are hidden in the grid. To restore these items, click Reset or select All in your refinement lists.
