Portal 10.6.1

As an admin/group manager,  I created a level 1 user profile for one of our employees, but cannot add them to a group.

Organization > user's profile settings > Add to groups ....... gives the error pop-up above.

This is a new user and not part of any other group on the Portal.

The Group settings are:  Open to Everyone (public) and 'Those who request membership and are approved by a group manager' can join.

I have verified the level 1 role permissions are default. Organization > EDIT SETTINGS > Roles "Viewers consume the resources of the portal. They can use the portal's maps and apps to explore data and join groups to access content shared to the groups."

Any ideas?

Hi Darragh,

What is the group setting for 'What items in the group can its members update'?

Level 1 members are unable to join groups where users can update all items in the group:

You can see this setting under the groups settings tab.

Thanks,
Marley

That was it, the group is set up where users can update all items in the group.
