SharePoint Groups and Permissions
- Published: 29 April 2019
Office 365s integration with SharePoint Solution strategies enables companies to increase document management and create collaborative working environments.
A SharePoint environment is considered as a safe and secure online space where employees are easily able to access and collaborate on company projects.
Previously called SharePoint Site Collection, Groups are a default permissions level within SharePoint. They commonly refer to access levels and rights that users must have in order to successfully access, edit and manage documentation.
Permissions are simply a set of levels that allows a user to Open, View, Edit or Delete documentation. Grating and restricting access is considered as a form of permissions management.
Types of permissions
- Read Permissions - This means that you can view a site but not make any edits to it.
- Contribute Permissions - Where you can view the site make changes to content but not additional changes to the site.
- Full Control - Identifies you as an owner,
- Access Denied – Means you do not have the permissions necessary to either access or view the site.
