I have a group of CiviCRM users who are restricted by ACL to only be allowed to view and edit contacts in a certain geographic region (those contacts in a group called "Northern Region"). They also have view and edit permission on another group.
The problem is that the Manage Groups page only shows these two groups. If they add a new group it immediately dissapears!
Is this by design? It seems excessively limiting. I'd expect people to be able to see pretty much all groups, but only be able to see contacts within those groups that intersect with the contacts they're allowed by ACL.
Is there a work around?
Perhaps such staff are expected to create new groups as child groups of one of their ACL groups, but this is problematic because (a) it means that they can't make a group combining contacts from two+ groups and (b) it currently breaks access because of Bug #430
