Groups & Sharing in EndNote Desktop

Group Sets are used to organize Groups and Groups are used to organize references. Use the Groups menu or the Group section in your library to:

  • Create a Group Set - groups that you create
  • Create Groups - references that you select
  • Create Smart Groups - references that EndNote can select for you from your references
  • Create From Groups - a new group based on references in existing groups

You can share individual references with colleagues in EndNote Desktop by choosing the mail icon to share a PDF or right-clicking the reference and selecting E-mail reference.
