The Group concept in the SBT platform relates to a targeted audience for one or more message campaigns; typically, groups may be created based on demographic criteria such as: Geography (zip codes), Age groups, etc. and would typically be specific to the type of messages and / or frequency with which you might want to address them.
The Group concept extends from and is an integral part of the Organizational hierarchy that the platform allows you to create in order to allow for a more realistic organization of the communication needs such as you might find in the real world. The Organizational hierarchy could typically be multi-level such as depicted below, however Groups may only be created under a Division:
-- Sub Division (Optional)
Note: In the current version of the API release we are only allowing for minimalistic support for interacting with Groups and no other Organizational element, as these are expected to be managed through the user interface.
