Document Permissions

    Question

  • I am trying to figure out that if I create a folder/file then invite people to have access to it how it will only give them access and not everyone by default.

    Currently when I try this, everyone already has access to the document that is created. There will be times where I cannot have them access the document or folder.

    I apologize if this has been answered before, just cant seem to find the right terms to Google it.

  • Hi,

    Based on my understanding, you have one library and want everyone be able to access it( including new child folder/items).

    You could try to follow this and check:

    Go to your library->Shared With->Invite people, share everyone to this library.

  • Lee,

    Sorry for the delayed response, for some reason I do not get emails when someone replies to my questions on here.

    Here is what I was trying to accomplish.

    Document library for "Accounting"

    Add all users to the site in that department

    I want some confidential folders to have only a select few of those members in Accounting to have access and keep the rest of the department from viewing the contents of the folder.

    For some reason when I click share with, identify the people to have access, then check "Shared With", it has other people that should not be able to view the folder.

    Hope that gives a better understanding of my goals. Thank you.

  • Hi,

    I think you need unique permission for these confidential folders.

    You could do as below.

    Go to your folder->advanced->Shared With->ADVANCED

    Stop Inheriting Permissions.

    Then, you could edit/remove user permissions.

    Best Regards,

    Lee
