As an important fail-safe, should an employee leave the District or department, it is suggested that each Site and Group have at least 2 owners. The steps for this process are below.

Adding a Second Owner to a Google Site

  1. Open the Site you wish to add a second owner to
  2. Click on the “Share” button at the top right
  1. Type in the name of the person you wish to add to the Site
  2. In the drop-down menu to the right, mark them as “Is Owner”
  3. Click “Share and Save” to set this user as a second owner of your Site.

Making a Current Member of a Group an “Owner”

  1. Open the “Groups” App from the top menu bar
  2. Click on “My Groups”
  1. Click on the Group you wish to add a second owner to
  1. Click on the “Manage” button at the top right
  1. Put a check next to the user you wish to make an owner
  2. Click on “Actions”
  3. Hover over “Add to Role”
  4. Click on “Owner”
  5. This user is now a second owner of your Group

Adding a New Member as an “Owner” to Your Group

  1. Follow Steps 1 – 4 above
  2. Click on “Direct add…”
  1. Now, type in the name of the person you wish to add to your group. You do not need to type in the full e-mail address; Google’s “Auto-Complete” will bring it up for you (just like when sending an e-mail)
  2. When finished, click on “Add”
  1. Now, you can go through Steps 5 – 9 above to make this new member an “Owner” of your group.
