Creating a SharePoint User Group is a fairly easy task and can be done by following few simple steps.

Let’s take a look at the steps –

Step 1 :

Click Settings

Step 2 :

Go to Site Settings


Step 3 :

Click “People and Groups” given under “Users and Permissions”


Step 4 :

Click Groups


Step 5 :

Click “New”, and then choose “New Group”>


Step 6 :

Enter the fields given under “Name and About Me Description”. In our case, we entered “Leadership” as the Group Name


Step 7 :

  • Go to “Give Group Permission to this Site” and select the permission level that will be available for group members by selecting the required check boxes. In our case, we selected “Full Control” that will provide complete access to all members in the group.
  • Finally, click “Create” to save the changes you have made


You will be redirected to the page showing your newly created “Leadership” User group under “People and Groups”
