I'm not quite sure why the New dropdown link is missing within the People and Groups section when i'm logged in as the Site Collection Administrator.

enter image description here


This is because you are looking at "All People", it is not a SharePoint Group.

If you want to add users/groups here, you have to go to the "Site Permissions" page from "Site Settings" and grant permissions explicitly.

If you want to add users to a group you can visit that group by clicking on it from anywhere you see it in SharePoint.
