I'm trying to find all groups in a site and their users. We don't have access to the server so I can't run any scripts to get that information. I know how to find all the groups but the page shows them by 30, which slows me down if I need to do a quick search. Is there anyway I can change it to get all the groups to display on one page. Or if anyone knows of a way I can get all the groups and users from the front-end, that would be pretty amazing also. I know AvePoint has some software that would make all this a million time easier, it's just not an option for me right now.

The Site Users web part (in the "Social Collaboration" category) might get you what you want and can be added to any web part page with a configurable maximum number to display.

Is there a way to group by Groups. My main problem is accessing all groups and then users within the groups. A list of all users won't really help unless I can group it by which groups they belong too. Plus considering some users belong to multiple gorups, I don't think this would work out unfortunately. EDIT: the more i play with the webpart settinngs the more i think you may be on to something :) – Batman Jun 20 '13 at 17:39
On my site, it is only showing groups; I think it would only show users who are granted permissions directly to the site (rather than via group membership). – lgaud Jun 20 '13 at 17:47
Yea that what I noticed. It's actually a really good solution. The only problem is that I can't have this webpart being displayed on the site collection where everyone lands. There's 380 users, 181 groups, and very sensitive info. But if I move the webpart to a more restricted site, it will only give me groups for that site and not the site collection :/ – Batman Jun 20 '13 at 17:53
@Batman Why not set permissions on the page with this webpart? – James Flattery Dec 30 '15 at 17:16
@JamesFlattery I don't remember what this issue was anymore but yea sure that would probably work. – Batman Dec 30 '15 at 17:24
