Modify the groups listed when granting permissions to a site

When you click the button ‘Grant Permissions’ in the Permission screen of a site you always get the option to insert a user inside a SharePoint group. Most of the time there are some groups listed that are not applicable. But we can do something about that.

  • Go to the Site Settings of your website
  • Click ‘People and groups’
  • Click on the ‘Moreā€¦’ link in the Quick Launch in the Groups section
  • Click ‘Settings’
  • Click ‘Edit Group Quick Launch’
  • In the following screen you can pick the groups that show up in the Group Quick Launch, but this list will also be used in the ‘Grant Permission’ screen
