With User groups, you can segment users by department, location, team, or another denomination that suits you. Once you've created a user group, you can filter web views (dashboard, feed, values page, and leaderboards) to only display data from members in the group.

An example of the dashboard filtered by "Eng"

In the example above, people that appear in Givers and Receivers are members of the "Eng" User group.

Most popular displays a list of kudos given or received by members of the group. Importantly, members outside of the group can appear in kudos if they're on the other end of the kudos (e.g. Kacey gives kudos to Justin—not in the group—or Justin gives kudos to Kacey).
