  1. First, you must ensure that you have Full Control permission to support you create a SharePoint Group.

  2. Then, you can go to site permissions page directly using the URL: https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename/_layouts/15/user.aspx

  3. You could click on Create Group

  1. Sign in Microsoft 365 admin center as SharePoint administrators or Grobal administrators

  2. Click on Groups >> Active groups to creat a group.

You need Full Control permissions on the site. Then, you will be able to see 'People and Groups' option in site settings which will allow you to create a new group.


To create a group & grant permissions, you need a permission level that includes permissions to Create Groups and Manage Permissions. The Full Control level has both.

Also, You can go to site permissions page directly using the URL in this format: <siteUrl>/_layouts/user.aspx

Check this documentation to create a SharePoint Group.
