This article goes over how to add groups to the CRM tab and how to assign a group to a customer. Please note that groups are assigned to a customer while the industry field is assigned to a company. A company can only be listed as one type of industry but a customer can be in more than one group.
For example, Colleen is a school teacher - she would be assigned to the group called Schools - but Colleen also orders for her Sunday school class - so she would also be assigned to the group called Church.
Note that under the Marketing Tab - Email Marketing, you can select groups to send emails to. Please see the Email Marketing article.
Note that you can look up all the customers that fall into a group using the Contact Search Icon. Please see the Contact Search Icon article.
