Add Users to a Collection-Level Group

You can add users to existing collection-level groups. You cannot add users automatically to a collection-level group when you create it, but you can add users to it after it is created. To add users to groups, you must have read/write permission to the groups you are changing.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Project Collection Administrators group or your Edit Collection-Level Information permission must be set to Allow. For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To add local or domain users to a group

  1. In Team Explorer, connect to the team project collection to which you want to add users.

  2. On the Team menu, point to Project Collection Settings, and then click Group Membership.

  3. In the Global Groups dialog box, select the group to which you want to add users, and then click Properties.

  4. In the Team Foundation Server Group Properties dialog box, on the Members tab, under Add Member, select Windows User or Group, and then click Add.

  5. In the Select Users or Groups dialog box, under Enter the object names to select, enter the name and alias of the users or groups you want to add. To add more than one user at a time, separate the entries with a semicolon (;).

  6. Click OK twice, and then click Close.
