On this link http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office365-sharepoint-online-enterprise-help/understanding-permission-levels-HA102772294.aspx#top it mentioned the following about the Edit, Contribute & Read permission levels:-
- Edit:- Add, edit, and delete lists; view, add, update, and delete list items and documents.
- Contribute:- View, add, update, and delete list items and documents.
-Read:- Add, edit, and delete items in existing lists and document libraries. By default, this permission level is assigned to the Members group.
It seems that “Edit” permission level provides the ability to manage Lists , while the “Contribute” and “Read” enable users to only manage items in existing lists. But I cannot figure out what are the differences between Contribute & Read in this case, as for me they seem to be similar ?
Can anyone advice?
