Hello Stackexchange SharePoint masters :)
I've been a long time reader of this marvelous source of information but at long last I could not find a solution to a problem I encountered so I figured it would be time to post my first question:
I have a document library, and have 3 groups that should have access to contribute to one of the 3 folders in the document library. So group 1 should have contribute access to Folder 1, group two to folder 2, etc. while having no access at all to each others folders, as well as no ability to place documents in the root of the document library. (read access only on the library itself)
So after configuring the library with broken inheritances, only contribute access for the groups on their respective folders, and read only to the top level of the document library. This works except for one detail:
The add new item link at the bottom of the library webpart is removed completely, which is desirable on the top level of the library, but not in the folders where the users need to upload their documents. They can still upload via the ribbon, but the majority of the users insist to have this link at the bottom of the library.
So my question to you is if there is a way to bring this button back, or if this is one of those annoying sharepoint 2010 quirks that is not removable?
