Setting permissions for file folders in SharePoint Workspace 2010

You can control the activities members can do in individual folders by setting folder permissions.

Note: Your ability to change permissions for a folder depends on your role in the workspace. Typically, only managers are authorized to change permission settings.

Setting permissions for a file folder

  1. If you are setting permissions for a shared folder, select the folder and click Show this folder's properties in the File and Folder Tasks pane.

  2. If you are setting permissions for a folder in a 2007 Files Tool, right-click the folder and then click Properties.

  3. Click the Permissions tab in the Properties dialog box.

  4. Select the role for which you want to change assigned permissions.

  5. Check or uncheck permissions for each selected role.

  6. Select an option for applying your changes.

    • If you want to change permissions for another role, click Apply, then select the next role.

    • If you are done changing permissions, click OK.
