To be able to change a person's Role (permissions), you must have the Role of Administrator for that group.

Changing a Person's Role

  1. On a Group page, find and select the Group tab at the top of the page (after the View tab).
  2. Select the People link.
    The shortcut to this link for any group is: https://hg.gatech.edu/group/node/#/admin/people, where # is the group ID number.
  3. In the Name text box, type the name of the person whose role you want to change.
    • If their name automatically appears as a drop-down after a few moments, select their name in that drop-down and then select the Apply button.
    • If not, you may have misspelled their name (or they may be a member under their GT Account, e.g. gburdell3).
  4. Find this person's account in the table at the bottom and select the Edit link in the farthest right column for their row. (Only the Manager of the Group can modify more than one user at a time using "Operations".)
  5. On the next page, check or uncheck the boxes next to the Roles you want to add or remove.
  6. Select the Update membership button at the bottom.
  7. If successful, you will see a message at the top of the page that says "The membership has been updated."
