I tried writing some basic documentation about groups. Not sure if it'll
be what you are looking for, but feel free to let me know if it makes

6.7 Window Groups
Screen provides a method for grouping windows together. Windows can
be organized in a hierarchical fashion, resembling a tree structure.
New screens are created using the screen command while new groups
are created using screen //group. See Section 6.2 [Screen Command].
    Once a new group is created, it will act as a container for
windows and even other groups. When a group is selected, you will
see the output of the windowlist command, allowing you to select a
window inside. If there are no windows inside a group, use the
screen command to create one. Once inside a group, using the
commands next and prev will switch between windows only in that
group. Using the windowlist command will give you the opportunity
to leave the group you are in. See Section 7.4 [Windowlist].

group [grouptitle]                                       [Command]
       Change or show the group the current window belongs to.
Windows can be moved around between different groups by specifying
the name of the destination group.
       Without specifying a group, the title of the current group
is displayed.
