Item10741: Enhance GROUPINFO to handle Main.GroupName.

Priority: Enhancement
Current State: Closed

Using the GROUPINFO macro it is possible to extract users by supplying the group name e.g. SomeGroup

However it does not work with Main.SomeGroup (which is not documented and causes some confusion)

It would be great to be able to use both formats

I can see the point of GROUPINFO automatically removing a web prefix if and only if that web is the %USERSWEB%. Thus, by default, GROUPINFO should treat Main.SomeGroup the same as SomeGroup, but Sandbox.SomeGroup should not be treated the same as SomeGroup.

I agree that the current behaviour is a problem, so I am setting this to Confirmed.
