A group is a collection of users who have the same security requirements in Team Foundation Server. By adding users to groups, you can significantly reduce the time spent managing user permissions. Users automatically inherit the permissions of any group to which they belong.
It might take several minutes for new membership in a group to propagate to an individual user account.
