Add user to group in SharePoint 2013

In this post we will discuss about how to add user to a SharePoint group in SharePoint 2013. Also you can check out my previous posts on Hover panel in SharePoint 2013 search, Reindex feature in List and document library in SharePoint 2013 and What's new in workflow in SharePoint server 2013.

Follow below steps to Add user to SharePoint group:

From the Top level of site collection go to Site Actions -> Site Settings.
Then from the Site Settings page from Users and Permissions group select People and Groups.

Then from the People and Groups page click on the New menu of the toolbar, select Add Users.

Then Enter the name of the user that you want to add to the group and also enter a message to include in the email invitation that will be sent to the user.

Click Share.

If you do not want to send an e-mail invitation to users you are adding to a group, you can select the Show Option link on the page and deselect the Send an e-mail invitation option. By default the system is configured to send notifi cation e-mails whenever you assign new permissions.
