Create meeting workspace by user who has no permission to create subsite RRS feed

  • Question

  • In our MOSS2007 environment, create subsite permission is not allowed for endusers. Therefore they won't be able to create meeting workspace. Is there any workaround (without using custom code) by which they can create meeting workspace? If it is not at all possible without custom code, please suggest a method with minimal custom code.

  • Hi Justin,

    Option 1: Give End-users permission to create sub site & give only single template(Meeting Workspace) while creating.

    If publishing is enabled then one of the options in site settings is "Page Layouts and Site Templates". Here you can restrict  which site templates you want to allow.

    Option 2: Write a Web part which creates a sub site with the required template(Meeting Workspace). This web part will run using administrator's privileges.


    Please let me know if this is helpful.
