    Hi @Glenn Maxwell,

    Based on your description, you could use this command to add/remove user via CSV:

    For add:

    Import-CSV "C:\members.csv" | ForEach-Object {Add-UnifiedGroupLinks –Identity "XXX" –LinkType Members  –Links $_.member}

    For remove:

    Import-CSV "C:\members.csv" | ForEach-Object {Remove-UnifiedGroupLinks –Identity "XXX" –Links $.member –LinkType Members -Confirm:$false Write-Host "The user" $.member "removed"}

    Here is the sample CSV:

    However, I suggest you can do it step by step since you just need to tack action on a small number of users.

    Note: You can’t add an Owner straight away to group, first you will have to make it a member of the group and then you can change the role to owner.

    So we add [user3@contoso.com] & [user4@contoso.com] and [user5@contoso.com] & [user6@contoso.com] as the member first, run this command:

    Add-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity "XXX" -LinkType Members -Links [user3@consoto.com], [user4@consoto.com], [user5@consoto.com], [user6@consoto.com]

    Then change [user3@contoso.com] & [user4@contoso.com] the role to Owner, run this command:

    Add-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity "XXX" -LinkType Owners -Links [user5@consoto.com], [user6@consoto.com]

    To remove user1 & user2, run this command:

    Remove-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity "XXX" -LinkType Members -Links [user1@consoto.com], [user2@consoto.com]

    For more information you can refer to the documents below:
