An action group’s settings include its ID, name, and description. Once a group is created, you can no longer change its ID, but you can edit its name and description at any site level as follows:
1. Go to the Search Result Action page for the site level and tab for which you want to create the new action group as described in “The Search Result Actions Page”.
2. Click on the target group name and select Edit Action Group or Overwrite Inherited Group from the action menu (depending on whether or not the group is inherited).
3. You should now be on the Edit Action Group or Overwrite Action Group page.
Make the following settings:
Name: Enter a name for the group as it should be presented on the Search Result Actions page at the current level and below.
Description: Enter a short description for the group. This will help remind yourself and other administrators about the intended purpose of the group.
4. Click OK to close the Edit Actions Group page and store your settings.
Note that if you edit the name and/or description of an inherited action group, then your settings will apply at the current site level (and below) only. Furthermore, these settings will no longer track changes made at higher levels in the SharePoint hierarchy.
