I think what he means is he wants to create a mapping for a specified group of users (AD group).
Here is a how to.

Go to the GPO you intend to use for this and then go to the following setting.
User configuration --> Preferences --> Drive Maps.
Right click it, choose new and then Drive mapping. Fill in the information that is needed there (name share, letter to assign and so on.

Then, when this is done, go to the tab Common and select the option "item level targeting" and choose the AD group you would like to assign it to.

Keep in mind to add the GPO to a user OU because it is a user setting.

Also, the good thing about using Item Level Targeting is that you can have all of your drive mappings under 1 GPO and its easier to manage.

 Right-click 'Group Policy Objects'> 'New'
 Give your policy a name and click 'OK.'
