  • Hi,

    Follow the steps to enable the members to add users to the Site Owner Group,

    Step 1: Go to Site Action --> Site Settings --> People and Groups --> Select the group name on which the owners to be added

    Step 2: Naviate to the "Menu Settings" --> "Group Settings"

    Specify the "group owner name" in the Owner section. This can also refer the self group name so that any member of the particvular group can add any other members in that group.

    Thanks

  • Are you also directly added to the site with Full Control besides being a part of the owners group? If that is the case please verify the permission of the owner group from Group settings.

  • Hi,

    Many Ways:

    1. you can add them as site collection administrator so they will have all the rights within a site. (Site action-->site settings-->site collection..)

    2. you can add them in site owner group (this group has full rights by default) (site action-->Site settings-->people and groups)

    3. You can also add user to site manually and give them full rights.

    Make sure that once you give the full control access the they can do everything within site as you do. So you need to believe them before giving this right

    Hope it could help
