Giving each User their own document folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a requirement in a Sharepoint 2013 setup wherein I've to give access to external users to a document library. Each User will have a folder by their name, and would be allowed to ACCESS their folder ONLY. They are not even allowed to see each other folder names. They can anytime upload additional or delete the existing documents. External Users are setup using FBA.

    Inside the network, there is a Windows user who'll have access to all the folders and documents of that library. I don;t think standard document library can handle this since there is no "Deny View" Permission in Sharepoint.

    Sharepoint Folks - Please guide what will be the best way to handle this kind of requirement.

  • SharePoint has security trimming, by which if you don't have at least read access, you cannot see the item.

    Alternatively, use MySites.
