How does an owner of a distribution group add a member?

We are using Exchange Online with our O365 E3 license. When I create a distribution group i see that i have options to make people the owner and another one for people to ask to be a member of the distribution group. If someone if the owner of a group how can they add someone? Also, how would a user ask to be part of the group?

if you defined the owner of Distribution Group , then he only able to add the member in the group, if any member add himself in the group, then approval will go to Owner of distribution Group

Hope this answers your query

Where do they add the member? From inside Outlook or through OWA? thats where i am confused.

since i am the O365 admin i can add them from the admin portal but i am not going to give anyone else that access.

yes in outlook or either in owa

by going to Group properties, they get the option to add/remove member

hello,

 yes From inside Outlook or through OWA

From inside Outlook for example

On the Navigation bar, click People.

Under My Contacts, pick where you want to add the contact group.

Within the "Members" area, click Add Members and enter email you want to add .

Thanks and Regards,

spmt,
I think thats for groups i add individually? I'm looking for the ability for a user to add members to a group thats on the server.

Thank you spmt. Thats what i was missing. I had to do it from the GAL. I was putting the group inside the TO field and then going to properties and not seeing an area to modify or add.
