How do I have people only upload documents to document libraries and NOT create documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a document library that I need to have people ONLY upload documents  to it.

    so when they  click new document that all they can do is upload a document,  as I don't want them to create a document in word or any other office app.

  • You can try removing Document content types from the library and see if it meets your requirement.

    Or If you are not using content types then you can go to the document library settings - advanced settings - remove the template URl from Document Template option.
