SharePoint - manage permissions of attachments in an Item

Asked By Bookworm on 05-Jan-12 04:59 AM
Hi,

I need to manage permissions of attachments. Is that possible? example: if user A attach fileA, then userB can attach in the same item fileB but he cannot delete fileA, and vice versa user A cannot delete fileB

any idea? if you have smth pls write because it is very urgent to me.

thnx

For the issue, do you mean that you want to set the read-only permission to the files in the document library or to the attached file in the list item?

If in the document library, you can change the settings in the manage permissions settings. If in the list item attachment, you can set the permissions in the list item level.

If this still doesn’t work, please try to this:

File folder options-> file types-> choose the type of your file-> advanced-> open as read-only.

Hope this could help you!

I need this: Only user that attach one file (in custom list), MUST have the right to delete it, even if we are in the same item.

im talking for attachments inside a single item, pls read more carefully what i wrote before.

thnx
