How to: Add Users to a Default Group

This procedure describes how to add a new member to one of the groups predefined by Team Foundation Server. You can add a user or group defined in Team Foundation Server, or a user or group defined by the Windows network.

Membership changes to a default server-level group made at the team project level are reflected server-wide.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Project Administrators group to add a user or group to a Team Foundation Server project-level group. Additionally, you must be a member of the Team Foundation Administrators group to add a user or group to an Team Foundation Server server-level group. For more information about the permissions that are required for adding and removing users to projects, and also to descriptions of server-level and project-level permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
