You have two options for adding items to an item group. You can either integrate (and remove) already existing items or create new items that will be placed in the item group.

If you are already inside the item group, go to the «Materials» tab.
The list shows you all the items that exist in the container object where the item group was created. Select the items you want to include in the item group. For items that you want to remove, uncheck the checkbox.
The «Delete» option in an item’s actions menu removes the item from the item group and deletes it irrevocably.
«Save» your selection.
In the «Assignment» column, you can see which of the items are included in the item group and which are not.
To view the item group, on the parent container (e.g., «Folder») in the upper left corner.
You can assign an item to several item groups.

Open the item group's actions menu and select «Delete»
