Of course, the point of SharePoint is to have users use its resources. So, it stands to reason that
you need to add user accounts as soon as possible. It is always a good idea, when setting up
SharePoint, to have at least one account set up as a site member, so you can check and see what
things look like to a user with only member permissions (as opposed to the administrative
permissions most of us have most of the time).
User permissions are managed in sets (such as read, edit, delete, and manage personal views)
called permission levels . Those permissions levels are generally applied to groups (although they
can be applied to individual users if necessary). There are a few groups pre-made for site
collections: Members, Owners, and Visitors. Owners have the full control permission level, which
means they have all permissions available. The Members group uses the Contribute permission
level, which basically gives the user the right to see lists, libraries, and pages; create personal
views and page versions; add, edit, and delete list/library items; and recover items from their
Recycle Bin. They are not allowed to configure site, list, or library settings. The Visitor group has
only read permissions to the site; they can’t contribute or configure settings. (For more about
user groups, permissions, and permission levels, see Chapter 12.)
1. To add a user to a site or site collection (obviously you need to have administrative
permissions or be an Owner to do this), on the site click Site Actions in the top
ribbon bar and select Site Permissions from the menu (just as we did to add site collection
2. On the Site Permissions page, click the Grant Permissions button.
3. In the Grant Permissions box (Figure 3.76), enter a username, AD security group, or email
address of a user into the Users/Groups box in the Select Users section. Separate the
entries by semicolon.
