Copying groups will create them on the destination site and will insert all the users who were members of the source group into the new group on the destination site.
- To copy groups, select "Groups" in the Navigation pane. See the Walkthrough for more details on how to use the Copy Site Objects feature.
- Select the groups you want to copy in the left pane and drag and drop them to the right pane, or click Copy.
- You will be prompted to confirm the copy. Click OK and the copy will start.
If you copy a group that already exists in the destination site, you will be prompted to select between Merge and Skip.
If you select the option to merge, all the users that exist in the source group but not in the destination group will be added to the destination group.The owner of the group will also be updated. However, the users that exist in the destination group but not in the source group will not be removed.
