I have a list with a bunch of folders in the root (one for each department to be exact). Each department also has its own SharePoint group containing the names of the respective employees in that department. So far so good :)
What I want is to be able to limit users from each department to view, edit and delete items from WITHIN their single, specific folder ONLY. In other words, when people from IT navigate to the list, they should only see the IT folder (no "add new item link") and should only be able to add items under this folder.
How do I set this up programmatically?
FYI: I've already tried breaking inheritance on each folder (and opting NOT to copy the existing role assignments) then manually granting each department's SharePoint group "Contributor" access to their corresponding folder. But... what this really does is the following:
- It allows only members from IT to see the IT folder **good**
- It allows members from the IT group to edit the name of the IT folder **bad**
- It does NOT allow members from IT to add items under the IT folder **bad**
- It does NOT allow members from IT to add items at the root **good**
