Document Library Approve Delete

  Asked By: Angelique    Date: Jun 30    Category: MOSS    Views: 1362

In a document Library any contributor can add, update or delete a document.

For adding and updating documents needed to be approved. But for deletion

No approval required.

Any way to remove only deletion permission from the users?

Problem is resolved

Go to Settings->Modify All Settings-> Advanced
Permissions->Settings->Permission Levels
Select Contributor and remove  "Delete Items"

In case someone needs it.

Rather than changing the default Contributor settings, you're probably
better off creating a customized group and adding  the users  to that.

In Site Administration -> Users and Permissions, select Manage Site Groups.
Select add  a Site Group and set your permissions.

My point was not only for just one site.
I had defined many sites in a collection and i didn't want any contributor
do the deletion.
Your method requires modifying each site and also each time you create a site
you need to
create a new group and be carefully set the permissions.
i just modified site collection contributor  permission level.. It was easy and
ok for me.

One of the alternative ways may be

Go to Settings->Modify All Settings-> Advanced
Permissions->Settings->Permission Levels
and define a new permission  level with any permission you want.
