Save Group

Name the group by typing in the Group Name field [1]. If you want to limit groups to a specific size, enter the maximum number of group members in the Limit groups to field [2]. Click the Save button [3].

Note: If your group set allows self sign-up and you set a group limit for the entire group set, the group limit will apply to each individual group you create. The option above allows you to modify the limitations within an individual group, such as changing one group to allow a few more members than the other groups. However, at a later time if you decide to edit the entire group set and change the group set limitations, Canvas will override all member limitations created within individual groups.
