SharePoint Permissions: Joining or Leaving Groups

Within your own SharePoint sites there may be places where you can self-select which groups of which you want to be a member. In those cases, there is probably a Join button or link on a page or in a menu.

Joining a Group

To join, click on Actions, then Join Group
Permissions: join a group

You will then see a confirmation letting you know you have joined the group. Click OK

Leaving a Group

If you later wish to leave the group, click on the Join or leave this group link, then go to Actions, and choose Leave Group.

Permissions: leave a group

You will then be removed from the group.
