Can someone please explain to me what 'Is Group' is about?

In the accounting section of ERPNext. Can someone please explain to me how the option ‘Is Group’ works?

Here’s a tree that shows how accounts are grouped, for example:

@Ariel_Jennings ERPNext has a tree structure for masters like Warehouses, Item Groups, Chart of Accounts, etc.

When you select the checkbox Is Group you can create subgroups or accounts inside the group.

Consider a scenario, if you have multiple branches of a warehouse for your company in a particular region, let’s say I have 3 warehouses in a city and similarly i have 3-4 warehouses in the cities in a same state, at such times, you can create a State as a group --> create cities or warehouses city wise inside it, these become the Leaf nodes.

Refer the following link :

This is a similar case for other tree structures in ERPNext.
