Someone's comment made me think differently, yes I made sure to check their ++ button, and others who also gave me ideas,
I logged in command line as Sally1 and tried:
ls -trl > text.txt
And that's when went back to checking group permissions for www-data, of which Sally1 was already part of.
Then I realized that when I went to change the group's permission I was leaving out the g+
I realize for security reasons such a "thing" doesn't exist, but it would be great if you could copy one user's permissions to another in one fell swoop.
