This article will explains you how to create new sharepoint user group.

We would be continuing with our Tutorial series and Create Sharepoint User Group in newly created Sharepoint Site i.e. "My New Site"

Step 1: Open "My New Site" by clicking on My New Site link from top link bar.

Step 2 : Click on "People and Groups" from left pane as shown in figure.  This will open Poeple and Group for Newly created sharepoint site, "My New Site".

Step 3: You will able to view all the list of groups available created by default by sharepoint for "My New Site" Sharepoint Site.  You can also view users available in each group by clicking on particular group.

Step 4: Creating User Group in Sharepint Site

Now as shown in figure click on menu link "New' and select "New Group" to create new sharepoint group.


Step 5: Give Name to your new group and little description about that group.

Here, I have used group name "MyNewSiteVisitors".  By default group owner would be the one who is creating group.  As we are logged in as LitwareInc Administrator, the owner of group would be Litware Inc Administrator.

Step 6:  Select option for group settings

Group settings will able to Specify who has permission to see the list of group members and who has permission to add and remove members from the group.

Let select the default grroup settings i.e Group Members can view the group members and Group Owner had permission to add and remove users from the group.


Step 7:  Select option for Membership request

Membership option will able to Specify whether to allow users to request membership in this group and allow users to request to leave the group. All requests will be sent to the e-mail address specified. If auto-accept is enabled, users will automatically be added or removed when they make a request.   Select the default option No.

Step 8: Press Create button and group "MyNewSiteVisitors" will be created.
