Managing Groups of Computers
Organize computers according to location, function, access permissions, or any criteria you specify. For example, you might place all servers in one group, PCs in another, and Macs in a third.
Who can use this feature? Computer groups can be managed by allCentral account holders and any Central user with the Computer Group Management permission set on the Users page.
View Groups using the Groups list
Use the Groups list at the top of the page of the Central interface to filter computers by group or status.

I have over 1000 computer groups. How can I filter them?
When you have more than 1000 computer groups, the Show All Groups filter is unavailable. Instead, you can start typing the name of the group that you are looking for into the Search for group to show field at the top of your computers list.
