The Group field is the user profile field that you want to use to distinguish between groups of users and the sets of charts they see.

For every distinct value that exists for that chosen field - across all users in your database - you are able to select a different set of charts to display.

It is best to choose a value which has the bare minimum of variation between users that still allows you select the range of chart sets that you need to fulfil your business requirements.

For example, you may want to display different charts depending on where the user works. If you choose the group of City you may have to define charts for hundreds of different groups across the country. Whereas choosing State you would have to define less than ten sets. State does not allow for as much variation as City does - but certainly requires less work!

If you want to show the same chart set to everyone on the site, choose the field that has the least variation possible. Most of the time this will be Country.
