Hide The Upload Button RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I have a SharePoint 2010 Form Library that holds infopath forms services forms. I don't want users to upload just any type of document to the Form Library.

    I don't want to have to mess around with jQuery or XSLT because I will be reusing this site as a template for other sites.

    How can I hide the Upload button with permissions only?

  • Create a new permission level that excludes 'Add Items'

    1. Start at the existing Contribute permission Level
      a. http://{server}/{site}/_layouts/editrole.aspx?role=Contribute
      b. At the bottom, click the 'Copy Permision Level' button
    2. Enter the new values, and check the boxes you want for the Copied permission level.  Ensure to remove the 'Add Items'.

    Save it, then assign the groups/users to your new permission.
