SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have create four different permissions groups for my form library.

Users: Which have Contribute Privileges

Admin: Which have Contribute Privileges

Approver: Which Have Approver Privileges

Owner: Which have full control

I have noticed that individuals who are in the owner group, such as myself can only see documents which they created, even when they have full control privileges. If I wish to see users documents that were created with contribute privileges, I have to be place in a group with those settings.

Is this correct?

It seems counter-productive for individual with full control privileges to have be in lower permission groups as well.

What am I missing?

Check the settings on the library. You may have turned on the setting where users can only view their own items, not others.

Where does that exist under in the Library settings? –  Patrick_J Feb 21 '12 at 19:21

When using Replace Permissions in SharePoint Workflows, you need to add all permission groups of users who will be interacting with the library.

If you leave out a group, their permissions are essential revoked for the library.
