Group Roles/Ranks and Permissions


If you would like to grant special privileges to certain members, then the RoleSet system is the way to do it! The default group roles are Owner, Admin, Member, and Guest; however, custom ranks can be created by clicking the Create New button on the Roles section of your group's Group Admin page. For more information about this page, click here.

How to Assign Roles to Members

As long as you're the group owner or assigned to a role with the correct permissions, you can change another user's role by doing the following:

  1. Click Groups in the navigation bar on the left of the screen
  2. Find the group in question and click on it
  3. Click the Group Admin button on the right of the page
  4. Click Members
  5. Find a user you would like to modify
  6. Click the drop-down box under their picture
  7. Select the role you would like them to be assigned to

Note: you will only be able to change the roles of users that are currently in roles ranked lower than yours. Additionally you will only be able to promote users to roles ranked lower than yours.

Creating a New Role

If you are the group owner, you can create a brand new role for your members to be assigned to. Each new role will cost 25 Robux. To do this:

  1. Click Groups in the navigation bar on the left of the screen
  2. Find the group in question and click on it
  3. Click the Group Admin button on the right of the page
  4. Click Roles in the left column
  5. Click the Create New button
  6. Fill in the role's name, description and rank
  7. Click Purchase

This will create the new role with the default permissions. To edit these permissions and see what each one does, see the following section.

Note: Names cannot be used on more than one role at a time and ranks must only include the numbers 1-254. Errors most commonly occur when two or more ranks have the same rank number or rank name. Special characters may also cause group ranks to not update properly.

Note: There is a hard cap of 20 ranks for each group. This includes the "Guest Rank" automatically included for all groups.

Editing a Role and Its Permissions

Group owners can edit roles and their permissions from within the Roles tab of the Group Admin page. For steps on finding this, please see the above section.
