Managing Groups

PDQ Connect allows you to save Filters to create Groups that help organize your devices. 

Creating Groups

  • To create a new Group, select Filter while viewing the Devices page, or Create Group with the Groups menu expanded.


  • Configure your desired filters and click Save as Group to save the configured filters as a new Device Group. 


  • When viewing a Group, a number will appear over the Filter button, indicating the number of applied filters. 


Viewing Groups

The Groups menu will display the number of devices inside each group next to the group name. The device count shown is refreshed every 10 minutes for performance reasons. In the future, the polling frequency will be increased for faster refresh times. For now, you can view the exact number of devices in a Group in real time by clicking on the Group and noting the number of devices at the bottom right of the page.

  • The All devices Group is the default group and cannot be deleted. This group displays every device managed in PDQ Connect and will always be prioritized at the top of the Groups menu. 


  • Select any Group to view the group's membership. 


  • To rename or delete a Group, click the ellipses (...) next to the group and select Rename or Delete

  • To edit a Group's filters, select Filters while viewing the Group you wish to edit. 


  • Select Update Group to update the Group's filters, or click the dropdown and select Save as New Group to save the edited Group's filters as a new Group. 



Group Folders

Groups can be organized into folders to add structure and granularity. To create a folder, click the down arrow next to "Create group" on the Devices page and toggle it to Create folder. Click Create folder and give the folder a name. Folders will appear at the top of the groups list just under "All devices." 

  • Folders are differentiated from groups by the > icon next to the folder name. Once a folder has been created, you can drag groups or additional folders into that folder. Up to three levels are supported in the folder hierarchy, and any number of groups may exist in a single folder. 


  • To expand a folder and view its contents, simply click on the name of the folder. Subfolders can be expanded the same way as folders that exist above it. Below is an example of a folder hierarchy with three levels that contains groups at the third level.
