This option assumes a suitable network group is available.  Most large networks will already have users grouped into domain groups depending on their department or role.  If a suitable group does not exist, network administrators can quickly construct a new group using the Active Directory management tools.  For example, forming a new group called ''PaperCut Users''. Active Directory's filter and query options may help with this task.
