  • Do you mean that you removed Microsoft 365 group from "Members" group? Feb 25, 2021 at 2:17

If you have removed permissions of Microsoft 365 group from Site Members group (Edit permissions), you can again add permissions to Microsoft 365 group from site settings.

Follow below steps:

  1. Click on Settings (gear icon)
  2. Select Site permissions
  3. Scroll at the bottom side of right panel and select "Advanced permissions settings"
  4. Open SharePoint default "Members" group (it will have name in format: <Site name> Members)
  5. Click on "New" --> Add users to this group
  6. Search & select name of your Microsoft 365 group
  7. Click Share

  • So when i go to the site settings can i then make a new group and add the permissions. Is that the right way? Feb 25, 2021 at 2:25
  • I don't think i am authorise to perform these steps because I can not find the settings "Advanced permissions settings" Feb 25, 2021 at 2:40
  • What permissions you have on this site? You can directly go to the advanced permissions settings using URL like: https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/siteName/_layouts/user.aspx and then follow from step 5. Feb 25, 2021 at 4:14

By default the edit permission level cannot be deleted via UI. It cannot be selected to modify. How do you delete it? enter image description here Anyway you can create a new permission level with the same permission settings. enter image description here enter image description here

  • @user2170776, site level or library level? Reply from Genesh will be the solution for you. For M365 group connected sites, just re-grant permission to the groups
