Sharepoint 2013 - Bulk Add Users

Posted on 2016-10-03

In Sharepoint 2010 you were able to copy and paste users to groups as long as they were separated by ";" , but you can't seem to be able to do this in Sharepoint 2013. Any ideas for a work around? i.e. Excel VBA or VB Script?

Many thanks

Thanks but i do not have access to the sharepoint server - i am user of the sharepoint and have administrative write to change/manage the site etc.

Can I still use PowerShell to make the changes?

It depends on what access the administrator has delegated to you.
But normally users cannot add other users..

You should be able to add users that are separated by a semi-colon, nothing has changed in 2013 compared to 2010 in that regard. Double check your input to make sure it is correct.

What kind of error are you receiving?

Hope that helps...

thanks I realized that in the older version of sharepoint if you had data going down in columns in excel you could easily copy and paste the information but in the new version you need it going across in excel as it cannot recognize the carriage return
