    Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 adding users

    I am a complete Sharepoint newbie and I just installed WSS 3.0. I think I will figure out most of what I want to do. However I am stuck on adding users. I can go into People and Groups and add individuals, groups. But I want to do a bulk import of all my pupils and staff. I can talk to AD fine for example I added the 2009 pupils OU fine, and can log in with any user in that OU in sharepoint. But I dont want it to be just a "pupil" group and a "staff" group.

    Not really, I can add all authenticated users, but then that just add's everyone. I want to be able to add individuals to sharepoint. So I can give special permissions to certain people be it staff or pupils.

    Alex,
    Where do I start with SharePoint permissions - There are so many different ways

    Each Site will have its own permissions unless it is inheriting them from the above site.

    People and Group is a little confusing - its not where you want to add users.

    Go to your top level site, Site Actions, Site Settings. Under Permissions click on Advanced Permissions.

    You will see 3 groups (maybe more) then click on New. You are not creating a new group you are adding users to a group. Having added your users at the top you will then have to select the group.

    3 levels of groups

    Vistors
    Can only view the site, documents etc

    Members
    Can add, edit, delete announcements/documents etc

    Owners
    Full control, change permissions, delete the site etc

    Hope this helps - if not give me a shout

    Alex

    You can assign AD groups in sharepoint.

    I just gave our "teachers" group the appropriate permissions.

    No need to import any users, sharepoint is AD based.
