You can directly add, modify, and remove users to and from a Team Foundation Server. When managing users, you should determine what the users' roles are and what permissions the users need to work within the role. Unlike Team Foundation Server groups, which have preset permissions, you must expressly set permissions when adding individual user accounts. Managing groups is less complex than managing each user individually. Consider adding users to Team Foundation Server groups instead of adding them individually.
