Now Sophos Central has the ability to manage computer groups and apply certain policies to them, I would like a way to ensure a newly installed client becomes a member of a computer group. Sophos Enterprise Console has a similar function whereby you could use a command-line switch to assign the group when installing the client. Is it possible to do something similar in Sophos Central?
please see the recent Sophos Endpoint Protection: Installer command line options and the Additional information.

Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for.
I've looked at the suggested link which explains the available switches:
However these switches don't work on the thin installer available from the Sophos Central site (sophosinstall.exe). This installer only offers these switches:
I have also tried unpacking sophosinstall.exe to get setup.exe but the switches referenced in the first document still don't work.
The first link above mentions SophosSetup.exe. Where does that come from?
I am obviously missing something here but I can't work out what it is at the moment.
If someone could point me in the right direction that would very helpful!
In reply to Robin Edwards:
my bad, I didn't read the article with adequate care - This capability will be available to customers soon via an early access program in late November. Thus I think it's not yet GA. Can't say if it is an open Early Access Program.
I saw that quote about November and just though "it's December....!"
I had a look at the Early Access Program link and found the new client is indeed open. I have joined the program and and am testing the client now.
Thanks for your help
I'm assuming there is only command line switches for adding computers to group, not users, correct?

That is how I understand it.
