Copy/Paste Group
From this module you can copy all of the parameters from one group, go the nexts group’s Copy/Paste Group and hit the paste button to copy over all of the attributes. You can also reset all of the Group’s options by hitting reset.
 
Create Group Null
This will create a 3D Null Object at the anchor point. You can use the null object to control the group’s position, rotation, orientation, and scale. You can also move the anchor point by moving the null object’s anchor point value.

Generate 3d Position 

Generating a 3d Null is useful for finding a reference position point to add other layers close to Element 3D objects. For instance, putting AE 3d text near an object, or adding smoke trails on the back of a jet. Check out this tutorial on how to use the generate 3d null option in the example of adding smoke trails to jets:
