Groups help you organize community content and enhance communication.
Zimbra Community gives group owners the flexibility to create groups within groups, a parent/child group architecture. This is a key component of the groups concept.
In Zimbra Community, both top-level groups and child groups support multiple application instances. This allows group owners to organize group content in a logical way and allows users easier information access.
When a user joins a group, he/she is automatically subscribed to its blogs and forums and receives notifications about new posts.
Content is organized by content topic instead of by group applications. Content can even be moved from one group to another in a way that makes sense to users. URLs also reflect the topic-driven navigation structure.
Administration and management are separated - thus group functionalities are consistent with the other Control Panel functionalities.

The permissions are transferred to all group applications but blogs - which have an additional layer of permissions associated with a blog owner/author.
The "super groups" concept supports three levels of of group membership:
