Delete a folder from Document Library via WebPart RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a sharepoint site set up with multiple pages - each page acting as a workspace for a committee.  Each page has a document library for documents for that specific committee.  Permissions to each document library are set to Contribute for a group named after the committee, and Full Control for the site owners - no other permissions.  The site owners have Full Control of the workspace page and the committee group has Read permissions only for their page.

    i.e.
    Site: Committee Workspaces
    3 pages: default.aspx; CommitteeA.aspx; CommitteeB.aspx
    2 Document Libraries: DocA; DocB

    Groups: Committee Owners; Committee A; Committee B

    Committee A group has read permission to default.aspx; CommitteeA.aspx and contribute permission to DocA

    Committee B group has read permission to default.aspx; CommitteeB.aspx and contribute permission to DocB

    Committee Owners group has Full Control permission to all

    CommitteeA.aspx has a webpart with the DocA - options set to Full Toolbar
    CommitteeB.aspx has a webpart with the DocB - options set to Full Toolbar

    One of our users is in the Committee Owners.  If they visit CommitteeA.aspx they can hover over a folder in DocA webpart and have the option to Delete the folder.
    If the same user visits CommitteeB.aspx they cannot get any options if they hover over a folder in DocB webpart.  However, if they click on DocB so they are taken to the DocB/Forms/AllItems.aspx page/view - then they can hover over the folders and delete.

    Any ideas why the behavior is different?  I though I compared settings and they all match.  It is not restricted to this user either, but we would like it fixed for users with the Full Control.

    Thanks for any ideas

  • It sounds like the view for one of the web parts and been modified...

    There are two ways you can display the name of a document or a folder when creating a view:
      Name (linked to a document)
      Name (linked to a document with edit menu)

    Go to the web part where they cannot delete the folder, click Edit, Modify Shared web part and click Edit the Current View and look to see which column is selected.

  • Strange because I set up both - one after another and set them up the same.

    Thanks!
