  • While you can hide the search box, a savvy user will always be able to use the search functionality. Keep in mind that users will only see search results for items that they have permissions to.

    Which version of SharePoint are you using?

  • Thanks for the reply. I'm using SharePoint 2007. Members do have access to the list or libraries but they are allowed to see only their own submissions, they are not supposed to see complete list. Search results give the complete list URL which i want to avoid.

  • When they navigate to the list, they will only see items which they have permissions to. How are you restricting them to only see their own submissions?
