Add groups to category

We are planning to use the groups more often.
Now we have categories 2 layers deep.
Is it possible to add specified groups categories to the second layer ?

Example:

Maincatagory: Marketing
subcategory: Search engine optimization
add a (closed) group to the subcategory: Search engine optimization: SEO Expert group

Sure, it’s possible through category permissions in the Security tab

Marketing > parent category, “everyone” can Create / Reply / See
Search engine optimization > child category, “SEO expert group” can Create / Reply / See (this means that “everyone” can’t see the subcategory at all, unless you set “everyone” to See or to Reply / See

Yes, i know that, but what if want everyone to see the Search engine optimization group and have a special group under Search engine optimization ?
And that group is the SEO expert group

You mean SEO expert group I think.

It doesn’t matter, the category permissions are superior to everything, so even if a group is set to be seen by “everyone”, “everyone” can only see the public topics, not those of restricted categories.

No,
Marketing > parent category,
Search engine optimization > child category,
Search engine optimization Experts > child, child category,

It is not possible to configure more than one level of sub-categories, our structure is parent category > child category.

ok that’s to bad.
Is it possible to solve this in an other way ?

We use tags instead of sub-sub-categories, see
