Why is "All Members" Grayed Out For Me In Google Groups?

If you are the manager of a Google Group but cannot view the entire list of group members, then the permissions are set incorrectly. Please go through the following steps:

  • Go to the Oregon State Google Portal
  • Click on Google Groups
  • Here you will see a list of groups of which you are either a member or a manager.  For any group that you are a manager of, you will see (Manager) beside the group name
  • Click on the Group that you are managing
  • Click the Manage button at the top right of your screen
  • On the left side of your screen, expand Permissions and then click Moderation permissions
  • In the section, Modify Members, click the button Select groups of users and check off Managers of the group.

    *Now, not only will managers be able to view their group members, but they will also be able to remove and change roles of members!
  • Be sure to click the Save button at the top of the screen.
