"Give Group Permission to this Site" not showing up RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a group that I want to be the approvers of a mysite.  When I go to the group and use mysite/_layouts/editgrp.aspx?Group=MYGroup  I do not get the "Give Group Permission to this Site" which is supposed to be on that page.  I am an SCA. and am in the Owners group who have full control.

  • You can't change the permissions assigned to a group by editing the group.  That's what you are doing on the editgrp.aspx page.  The section you are refering to shows up on the newgrp.aspx page (which looks the same as the editgrp.aspx page except for the section you are missing).  To edit the permission levels of an existing group use the site actions menu to go to Site Site Settings and then choose the Advanced permissions link.  You will see a list of users and groups.  Click on the group you want to change to go to the Editprms.aspx page.  you can select the permission level you want to assign there.  This is for 2007.
