- Launch the Domino Administrator and select the People & Groups tab.
- Click Groups and select the required group. Using the Tools pane, select Groups, and then select Manage. The Manage Groups dialog box appears (see Figure 1).

- To remove a data type from a group, expand the group under the Group Hierarchies section, select the data type to be deleted, and click Remove.
