Question on Security Access for Surveys

  Asked By: Amalraj    Date: Jan 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 947

Any ideas on setting up access for a user to respond to a survey and
or update a doc library but not have access to do anything else?

It seems that if you grant access to edit or update, then the user
can also modify the administrative settings. Any ideas?

Read the thread "Restricting subweb users from accessing top level
site." From earlier today.

The issue is we create sub site and want to set up a survey  for example.

Then we create this new user  group to update  the survey.

The problem we are having is that in order to allow the user to update
the survey, they require edit  access. The edit access  allows them to
manage the survey settings.

Is there any way around this?

Example of security  Group Permissions:

We have tried several combinations of Add, EDIT and View List Rights.

I no expert, and haven't yet got my portal going, and I only replied
because I had been reading that other thread just moments before. But,
the way FrontPage does it is add 4 security  groups to each
site--Authors, Editors, Browsers, Administrators, and gives each group
different access  privileges. I would suggest you look into how to
create roles/security groups on the site where you do your own managing.
