I have 2 site collections on different ports.

In site one with port 1234, I am able to create a new group and then add a couple of AD users to the group. Once done, I can click the Settings menu item and choose List Settings. From here, I can create views.

On site collection two on port 80, I can do the same thing in the root but not in a sub-site. I don't have the List Settings option. I see Group Settings, View Group Permissions and Make default group.

List Settings is missing. I am sure there is a setting somewhere I am missing.

  • The sub-site, is it using Unique permissions? Jan 2, 2015 at 16:47
  • Yes. And there are a few folders with specific permissions as well.

  • @AmalHashim The minute you asked that very basic question, I rethought this and went to the root collection and to groups and More... I found my group and it had List Settings there.

Make sure the sub-site in question don't have unique permission. All the group's will be available in the root.

You can open the People & Groups from the root site and make the changes you are trying.
