Adding groups to a site

Inviting users one at a time to join your site can be time consuming. To save time you can add entire user groups.
  1. Click Invite to Site in the site you want to add groups to, or click Add Users in the Site Members dashlet.

    Tip: You can open the Add Users page directly from the Site Members page.

    Important: You must be a site manager to add groups.
  2. Click Groups and then click Add Groups.
  3. Enter a search term such as a group name and click Search.

    Tip: You need to enter at least one character. The search is not case sensitive.
  4. Click Add for each group you want to add.
  5. Set the site role for each group, or use Set all roles to to assign the same role to all groups. This controls what the groups users can do in the site.

    Tip: See User roles and permissions for more about site roles.

    Once you've selected site roles for all the groups you've selected, the Add Groups button will be switched on.

  6. Click Add Groups to add the groups listed.

    A message displays showing the number of groups you've added. All these groups can now use the site. You can continue to add more groups as required.

    Note: You can click back to Site Groups to return to the Search for Site Groups page without adding any groups.
