Options File user in multiple groups

Is it possible to have certain users in multiple groups where they can draw a license from Editor pool or Contributor pool?


We have a number of users that are 100% Solidworks users, basically using SW all day long where the editor and SW licenses are allocated/reserved for them. We have another group of users that may use SW only a few times a week and for only a fraction of the day if they do use it. These users pull from the remaining pool of licenses.


However, if all the remaining licenses are checked out and they don't need SW, could they pull from the Contributor licenses to do the PDM work they need to do rather then use up the editor licenses which prevents the people that need to launch SW from launching it?
