Using Active Directory Groups dilemma

  Asked By: Chaim    Date: Dec 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1177

We are wanting to use Active Directory groups to manage security in our
WSS environment, but we want to be able to assign tasks to individual
members of the group. Is there a way to maintain security with AD
groups but still have the ability to assign tasks to individual members?

You would have to add those individual  users and assign  them individual
security rights to the site/area/list/whatever.

I don't know what takes precedence though; AD Groups, or invididual
permissions. My best guess is that the individual permissions would take
precedence over the group  permissions, but I could be wrong about

Whenever a new Web is provisioned, everyone that needs to be in the
Assigned To dropdown will need to visit the Web in a browser. Otherwise,
you will need to write a custom software solution.

SharePoint aggregates all rights assigned to an individual  and/or AD
group as the collective set of things that a user can do.

you can always have the task drop down list (for example) come from a custom list, not the user list. we had to do that because all users are assign  via AD.
