New Rights for a Site Group <using WSS>

  Asked By: Katharine    Date: Jan 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 919

In WSS there is a possibility to add new Site Groups aside from the
default like readers, contributers, administrators.... is it possible
to add custom rights like this user can access certain folders or
this is a first level approver for a certain document in a certain
document folder?

Is it also possible to specify the approvers in content approval of
documents? In SPS these can be done in in the dashboard, how about in

i am more used to managing SPS than WSS, i have been toying around
with WSS for only two days and i am newly hired. if my queries above
are already a built in feature, can you tell me how.

Yes, no site  groups can be added to WSS - under "Site Settings" -> "Go to Site
Administration" -> "Manage Site Groups" you can add  and remove site groups  for a
site (propogated to any sub-sites that inherit security). You cannot however do
anything with per-folder or per-document permissions - the lowest level  of
granularity is the document  library or list.
