Office 365 Groups: How to add or remove group members


Once created - the requesting department, committee, club, or group is responsible for maintaining membership.  This includes adding new people, and removing those who have left or otherwise changed roles.

We recommend each group has at least two group owners to manage membership so changes can be made if the primary group owner is not available.

Managing Group Membership

  1. Open the group you want to add people to (you should see the group listed below your folders in your mail).
  2. Click on the name of the group as per the screenshot below where the group name is highlighted in red:

  3. Click the Members tab.
  4. Managing Members:
    • To add members - click the "Add members" button
    •  To remove members - click the "x" to the right of their name
    • To make someone an owner of the group (meaning they will also be able to add/remove members) click the arrow next to their name where it says "Member" and then click "Owner" to change their role.  The reverse can be done by clicking the arrow next to someone with the "Owner" role and changing the to "Member".
