View a group's members

This page is for administrators. To manage groups for your own account, visit Google Groups help.


As a Groups administrator, you can always view the members of all of your organization’s groups. The access and visibility settings you choose for your organization’s groups, combined with an individual group’s settings, determine who else can view the group's members.   

Where can I do this? You can view group members either in your Admin console or Google Groups. You can view users who have been banned from a group in Google Groups.

View a group’s direct members

As an administrator, you can easily identify which members of a group are direct members.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. On the Admin console Home page, go to Groups.

You can also easily identify which members of a group are indirect members, even for complex hierarchies of groups nested inside other groups. Members of nested groups are indirect members of the parent group. Go to the member list to keep track of which members of a group are direct and which are indirect. 

Groups can have other groups as members. So, the email addresses of nested groups also appear here.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. On the Admin console Home page, go to Groups.
  3. Click the name of a group.
  4. Click Members.
  5. Click Direct and indirect members.
    The Relations column says if the member is Direct, Indirect, or both. A member can be both if they belong to a particular group, and also belong to another group nested inside that group. 

Other ways to view group members

You can also view group members in Gmail and calendar invitations.
