How to restrict users to upload excel reports in Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have observed that Project Managers and Portfolio Managers who have access to reporting data service (can see the reports link in quick launch) are able to upload their excel reports and also modify the existing excel reports in REPORTS folder ( PWA home-->Reports-->English (US)).

    How to ensure that they just have read access to the reports folder ( looks like it inherits permissions from PWA site sharepoint groups).  So that they can access the reports but cannot upload their reports and modify the existing excel reports.

    Please suggest.

  • Hi Sudhir,

    You could break the inheritance and give a read only access to the PWA Project Manager sharepoint group.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Guillaume,

    We thought it would not be a good idea to break the inheritance because the admin has to manually manage the permissions to reports folder. instead we are introducing versioning so that end users document will not be made pubic until it is approved. and the excel reports will checked out so that no one can modify them.
