MOSS2007 parallel to NTFS Creator/Owner

  Asked By: Eliseo    Date: Jan 15    Category: MOSS    Views: 1326

I have a list for which I want to allow users to add items, but only
modify or delete those items which they have created.

In NTFS, this would be handled by granting modify/delete permissions to
the CREATOR/OWNER group. Is there a parallel in the SharePoint list

There is. In the Advanced Settings for mosts lists, you can set the
Item-level Permissions that dictate what people can do with their own
items vs. items  created by others.

Go to the list  Settings for the list. Access the Advanced List Settings and
you will see a section called Item-Level Permissions. This is where you
adjust what people can edit or see. It's not done under the permissions.

It looks like we have two different types of lists. One type of list  has
Item-level permissions  in advanced settings. The other has 'Document
Template', 'Browser-enabled Documents', and 'Custom Send To Destination'
instead of 'Item-level Permissions' and 'Attachments'. So, it seems that
we cannot set item-level permissions on the second type of list.

We haven't set up content types at all (yet).

Why would these lists have different advanced settings?

What you have is a Document Library, which is different than a normal list.
You can limit who can see draft files through the versioning settings, but
all Major versions are viewable to all users  in the Document Library unless
you set individual permissions  on an individual document.

And to allow only the author to edit and everyone else to be read-only
requires the author to set up those permissions  on the document as they
publish it?
