Document Level Security

  Asked By: Wayne    Date: Aug 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1507

I wonder why Microsoft has removed document level security. Now I am
facing hard time convincing our Clients when I need to compare
Sharepoint with Products like Documentum or Open Text LiveLink or other
DM based software.

A couple points:

1. SPS 2001 doesn't have document  level access controls either ...only
exclusion lists at the document level  which, in practice, have been very
hard to use in an understandable way.

2. The WSS/SPS product groups have heard this from virtually every MS
partner and customer and I have difficulty imagining a scenario where we
don't see some improvements in a future release of WSS/SPS.

I agree with you and I believe Microsoft need to reintroduce the
Enhanced version feature too. More over I think much of Groove Inc
Virtual NetWork stuff can be incorporated in SPS. Just curious to know,
is SharePoint going to have workflow, better version control, better
scanning facility etc. on their next release.

The WSS/SPS product groups aren't discussing the "12 Wave" release of their
products yet. I would imagine we'll all learn more by the fall.
