WAP371 - Limit Bandwidth for Particular Users

With the Ubiquiti WAP's, I have the ability to create user groups that can restrict bandwidth.  I can then assign a user to one of those groups.  For instance, if someone is hogging up bandwidth, I can limit them to 5 Mbps downstream and 1 Mbps upstream instead of the default 250 down/30 up.

Is there a way to do this with the WAP371 series?
