shared folder permissions for SFTP

I work with a group of people in a lab at my university, and am trying to set up a shared folder that all users can read and write to, to store and share data. It is on the university network, so I do not have the ability to do root-ish stuff. I have the ability to create new directories, change permissions, etc. in our lab's subfolder. So, in the folder Data/, userA, userB, and userC should all be able to read and write from this folder, and anything one user creates should be readable/writable by other users. I have tried using the sticky bit, as suggested in other posts, but it does not seem to be working.
Any suggestions or comments would be welcomed!

Create a group and add all the users to this group. Then give that group ownership of the folder with rwx permissions.
