Create document but not modify Permission RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm looking to setup a permission group that allows users to add documents to a library, but not modify.  I made a copy of the Read user group and added "Add Item" rights to it, but the user can still modify documents in the library.  It should work in theory, but doesn't.  

    I've done a ton of looking around the web, but have been unable to find any information on this problem or solution.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi HoveyG,


    Thank you for sharing your problem.


    Have you tried to “Add a Permission Level”? Perhaps you can solve this issue by doing the following things:

    1.       Go to  The site > Site Settings > Permission > Permission Levels

    2.       Click “Add a Permission Level”.

    3.       Give a name to this level and select the permission you want to give.

    4.       Give this permission level to the group.


    Hope this could help you.
