-Unit groups are widely used in the user interface of Wialon+Unit groups are widely used in the Wialon ​system. ​

     * send commands to a group of units at once;     * send commands to a group of units at once;

-    * When configuring ​[[user/​jobs/​jobs|jobs]],​ [[user/​notify/​notify|notifications]] or [[user/​routes/​routes|routes]], they can be applied ​to a group of units at once, which accelerates ​the process.\\ [[user/​jobs/​new#​selecting_units_for_jobs_and_notifications|More...]]+    * apply the [[user/​jobs/​jobs|jobs]],​ [[user/​notify/​notify|notifications]]or [[user/​routes/​routes|routes]] to a unit group during ​the configuration,​ instead of applying them to each unit individually.\\ More information about creating and editing jobs can be found [[user/​jobs/​new#​selecting_units_for_jobs_and_notifications|here]].
  
-Unit groups ​also have some specific functions ​in the management system, ​which were described ​[[cms/​groups/​groups#​unit_groups_in_management|above]]+You can also work with unit groups in the management system.

-At that, unit groups are easy to handle. Deleting groups does not mean physical removal of units belonged to this group. That is why you can easily create, manipulate and delete groups. Besides, the dynamic formation of groups is supported — see [[user/notify/action|]]. It means, if some preset conditions are met, a unit can be added to a group automatically or removed from it+
  
 +Working with unit groups is easy. Deleting a unit group does not delete the units themselves. That is why you can create, edit, and remove unit groups, that is, configure the groups according to your needs. You can also configure automatic editing of groups with the help of the notification of the //​[[user/​notify/​action#​modify_unit_groups|Modify unit groups]]// type. When the set conditions are met, the unit can automatically be added to or removed from the group.
