Rename a Collection-Level Group

You can choose to rename a group to better reflect its purpose. To rename a group, you must have read/write permission to the group you are renaming. You cannot rename the default collection-level groups, such as Project Collection Administrators.

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.

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

    You cannot rename default groups.
