Users can see All Users of a site

  Asked By: Bhavani    Date: May 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1142

Is there a way so that users will not be able to see all of the users
of a site in WSS 3.0? I have a client that does not want their users
of the extranet site to see other users. Right now, a user can select
My Settings -> Then they can click People and Groups -> Then All People
and it will show all users of each site.

You could put them in separate site  collections.

There are actually a lot of pieces of information that we want to share
between each client  that would be needed in one site  collection.

I would suggest hosting the information multiple times instead of trying
to limit who can see who within the site. It sounds like the
privacy/security issue is larger than the pain it would take to host the
information in multiple sites.

I modified Quicklaunch and removed the link to People and Groups -
from the Main page - then moved to another site  such as IT - and
named it All People & Groups(MainPage). I did not want users  to see
this and by moving it works great.

Our site  may not be as elegant as yours, but here is how we handled that
problem. We have an external facing site that all of our clients and vendors
have access to. We use forms based authentication for them. Instead of adding
each user  to our site, we added a role for all of our forms based users  and then
added that role to the user group for the site. When we add a forms based user
we don't have to add them as a user to the site, but simply as a member of that
role that we created. It has worked well for us so far. (I've not seen where
our forms based users could see each other.)
