User with Full Control on Subsite Cannot Add Other Users

  Asked By: Dori    Date: Feb 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 11856

I have a site collection with one subsites.

The subsite has unique permissions.

* I have added users with full Control to the subsite and read-only to the parent site.

* Those users with full control in the sub site are not able to add other users to the site. The Add Users Option is not there (the Add Greoups option is there)


* Are the site Collection Administrators the only admins that can add users to subsites?

The group you're trying to add them to, is it the same group the parent site uses or a unique group for the current site?

Typically Site Owners can add existing Site Collection users to groups but are not able to add new users to the site collection, which is a permission reserved to Site Collection Administrators.

They are able to create groups, add existing users to those groups and give site permissions to groups and users who are already part of the site collection.
