Adding Chatter Group members in Lightning Experience

Knowledge Article Number 000232543
Description Users may report not having the ability to add Chatter Group Members from within Lightning Experience despite being able to do so from within Salesforce Classic.

If users do not see the option to add group members an administrator may need to apply the "New Group Member" Salesforce1 Action to the group page layout's "Salesforce1 and Lightning Experience Actions" section.

Resolution To add the New Group Member action in order to allow users to add group members in Lightning Experience:

1. From Setup, enter Groups in the Quick Find box, then select Group Layouts.

2. In the Salesforce1 and Lightning Experience Actions section, click override the predefined actions.

3. Select Salesforce1 Actions in the pallette and then drag "New Group Member" to the Salesforce1 and Lightning Experience Actions area of the page layout. Optionally you may add, remove, or rearrange the order of the other available actions.

4. Save your page layout
