Tell me about SharePoint Permissions / Access Rights
Aimed at: Edinburgh Napier’s staff
Each Site user has a specific set of permissions which define the level of access they have. The table below explains the standard permission groups used within the University:
Group Name: Owners
Permissions: Full Control
Defined: Has full control of the site.
WARNING This level of permission should only be given to fully trained Team Site Administrators. Be careful who you assign these permissions to - Owners have permissions to change the settings and potentially delete the whole Team Site.
Group Name: Members
Defined: Can view, add, update and delete items on the site. The majority of users would fall into this category.
Group Name: Visitors
Permissions: Read Only
Defined: Can view only. This should be used if you want a user to be able to view the Team Site content but not make any updates.
