VIEW ONLY permission setup for Sharepoint 2016

    Question

  • Hello,

    Do you know where to find 'View Only' permission in sharepoint 2016 ?

    Do you know how to enable the 'VIEW ONLY' option ? Many thanks !

    Please take a look at the attached three pictures. I would like to grant end user to view document in the sites by web browser only, they are not allowed to download it.

    Many thanks ! Ideas/Link/Suggestion are welcome.

    I saw the below link, there is an option for VIEW ONLY, but do not know how to enable it ~~Many thanks.

  • You can create your own permission level and assign it to a SharePoint Group. Have you done that?

  • Go to Site Settings -> Site Permissions. Click on Permission Levels in the ribbon. From here you can create a new level or copy an existing level (and modify it as required). You can then assign your new permission level to a user and/or SharePoint Group.

  • Hi viabug, 

    I have done a  test in my SharePoint 2016, the "View Only" permission level is here, maybe someone delete the "View Only" permission level.

    What is the template of your site?

    For this issue, actviate "SharePoint server Enterprise Site collection features" and "SharePoint server Enterprise Site features" and compare the results. 

    please create a new site collection in the SharePoint 2016 environment, then check whether "Vew Only" permission level is existing.

    As a workaround, I suggest create a custom permission level which has same permission with "View Only".

    Best Regards,

  • Dear Lisa,

    Thank you very much .

    I am using sharepoint 2016 Standard client access license and cannot enable enterprise feature because absent of Enterprise license.

    Therefore, I cannot activate "SharePoint server Enterprise Site collection features" and "SharePoint server Enterprise Site features" and compare the results.

    You also suggested me to create a custom permission level which has same permission with "View Only" without download access right.

    My files can be downloaded from end user. Could you suggest ways to select which option of below picture  so that end user cannot download the file ?

    Many thanks.

    Regards,

    Add permission Level Upper

    Add permission level lower

  • I have tried many combination between LIST PERMISSION and SITE PERMISSION in above post with screen capture, but file can be viewed in website and can be downloaded.

    PDF file can be downloaded if it can be viewed in web browser.

    Dear Lisa,

    Could you capture your VIEW ONLY permission for me ?

    Do you have any ideas for file  in website can be viewed only but not downloaded.

    Regards,

    Thanks in advance.
