Building Groups are a way of grouping your Buildings. For example, Building Groups can be used to organize Buildings by type, location, or any other classification that best suits your needs. They are a way of creating new filters for your data.
Note: It is possible for a Building to belong to multiple Building Groups.
Tip: Building Groups can be helpful for organizing your Asset service history reports based on a specific set of Buildings. For example, you could create a Building Group that splits up your residential and commercial Buildings. Or, you can create a Building Group based on the district/zone of your Buildings.
