The Groups band contains functions that allow the user to create and manipulate groups from the samples in the workspace. From here the user can group selected samples together, create groups based on a certain keyword (i.e. a group of all samples with the same Patient ID), or copy specific values or gates to existing groups. Keywords can also be added during analysis from this band.

Group selected samples

Clicking this icon constructs a new group, inserting into it the tubes from the currently selected samples.
