Umbraco 7.7+ now supports user groups. It is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version of Umbraco rather than relying on this package.
User Group Permissions allows permissions to be set on content nodes by user type rather than by individual users.
Updated for Umbraco 7
User Group Permissions is the Umbraco 7 version of Usergroup Permissions. It requires Umbraco 7.3.3+.
This package works with the existing Umbraco permission system, so you are still able to set permissions for individual users.
