Assigning group roles

Video: Administering members and roles

It is possible to have more than one group administrator, and it is also possible to allow certain members to edit content within the group. Both of these can be accomplished by adding roles to the members you specify.

The following steps show you how to add privileges to a regular member’s account.

Go to the Group tab on your group homepage

Group tab highlighted on Faculty & Staff group homepage.

Click "People"

People option highlighted on the Faculty and Staff group admin screen

Select users to modify

Just as before, find the user in your list of members (the People screen). In this example, I have searched for a specific username, so only one user is listed. Check the box next to their name.

Checked checkbox highlighted next to username on People screen

Modify User Roles

In the Operations dropdown, choose “Modify OG user roles.” Click Execute.

In case you're curious, the OG stands for Organic Groups, the Drupal module we use to divide this site into groups.

If you want them to also be able to manage group members, add the "Administrator member" rold.

See the Reference section on “Group Roles” to learn what each role can do).

Leave the “Remove roles” section alone.

Click Next.
