Now that you have created your list of Board members, it's time to create a group for them. The purpose of creating groups is that groups can be given both Global and Local roles, which means you do not have to change roles for each individual. The idea is to create one group which gets assigned a role for a folder. Any users in that group inherit the local role.
From Site Setup -> Users and Groups Administration click on the green groups tab on the task bar. You should see the title Groups Overview and any existing groups listed there (many sites have Administrators and Reviewers as default groups).
- Push the icon.
- Fill in Board, for both name and title
- Fill in a description if you wish
- Enter an email address. You should use your own email, if you are creating the board.
- Push Save.
You should now see your Board group in a listing that looks like this:
Assign the group role as member, unless you want all Board members to have full access to all parts of your site.
At this point the group has been created and you have your list of users. Now you must add users to your group. To do that, click on the group name. From there you can search for individual members, or click the Show All button to see everyone.
Select users one at a time, or use the checkbox at the top to select all users. Then push the "add selected groups and users to this group" button to finish.
