  3. Enter the Member name or Andrew ID or click search for an entity. A list of matching members appears.

    Note: Grouper will grant member privileges to the new member by default. To assign custom privileges, refer to Manage Privileges.

Remove a Member from a Group

You can only remove individuals or groups with a direct membership in your group. When you remove a group from your group, you remove all of its indirect members too.
