User Roles vs. User Groups

User Group refers to every account within this particular group.

Go to Settings -> Groups. Clicking on the group name, e.g. "Staff", takes you to the permission page where you set what wagtail permissions staff should have. For example, system administrators could adjust the administrative access or permissions of every account or individual with the "Staff" user role.
