Assign users to group

Groups are used in many contexts. In this example, we will add currently enrolled users in a course to a group.

Steps to add users to a group

After you have created a group, adding a user, or removing a user is simple. Highlight the user and click the add or remove button. Here are the specific steps:

  1. Click on the Groups icon in the course administration block
  2. Select the group in the left column, or create the group and then select it
  3. Click on "Add/remove user" button below the "Members of:" column on the left
  4. Select the user (use shift key to select more than one)
  5. Click on the "Add" button
  6. Click on "Back to groups" button to return to the groups menu

The types of potential users are listed under their roles in the course. In the above example, Leslie Learner has been only assigned the student role. Sam Student has several roles in the course.

There is an option on the features group page to automatically assign students to a group with Auto-create_groups.
