Office 365 Groups: How to Add or Remove group members

Overview

If a group is private, only the owner(s) of a group can add people to a group.  The owner can remove someone from a group, and an individual can remove themselves from a group.
 


Adding people to a group

  1. Open the group you want to add people to (you should see the group listed below your folders in your mail).
  2. Click the Gear icon at the top right and choose Members
  3. Click Add members on the left
  4. Type the name of a person to add on the right and click on them when they come up (or click Search Directory if they don't come up automatically).

Removing people from a group

If you need to remove someone from a group (for example, someone who left the college, transferred departments, is no longer part of your committee, etc.), do the following:

  1. Open the group you want to add people to.
  2. Click the Gear icon at the top right and choose Members
  3. Place your mouse over the name of the person you want to remove.  Three dots (...) will come up.  Click on the dots and choose "Remove from group".
