SharePoint Security (Document Libraries and Lists)

  Asked By: Mackenzie    Date: Apr 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1768

In my current organization I have KIOSK workstations that are logged
in and allow multiple users to use the same work station. We are
trying to implement a survey. However, I am getting stuck on the

Under the survey "Change General Settings" which was created on SPS

Item-level Permissions
Specify which responses users can read and edit.

Note: Users with the Manage Lists right (assigned to Administrator
and Web Designer site groups by default) can read and edit all
responses. More information on item-level permissions.

You have the following settings:

Read access: Specify which responses users can read
- All responses
- Only their own (Currently Set)

Edit access: Specify which responses users can edit
- All responses
- Only their own
- None (Currently Set)

The issue is the end users cannot submit any survey responses.
Shouldn't they be able to at least submit one response?

Any help would be very appreciated.

If it is on a portal, you have to adjust the area permissions  to grant
Readers (or whichever site  group) the permission to "Add Items". If it
is on a WSS site, then do the same under "Change Permissions for this
survey" on the Modify Settings and Columns page.

Note on portal, changing the Add Items rights for Readers will allow
them to add a new item to any web  part located on that area. Consider
storing the survey  on an area of its own if this would be a problem.

Surveys by default  do not allow response submissions unless the user has
Add Items rights. It is treated like any other list or library.

I believe that you will need to set edit  access to:
Specify which responses users  can edit
- Only their own

If they can't edit their own, they can't insert their own.

Other way around, they need rights to add, in order to edit. Handle add
rights at the survey  list permission or portal area security  level.
