We are using SharePoint online. I have a sub site called grants which has a group called Grants Owners. I have give Grants Owners Full Control. In Grants there are several document libraries. It appears that those who are in the Grants Owners group can not see all of the folders in the document library. Do I have set any permissions at the root level or just at the sub site level?

If that document library lives in the sub site then permissions to only the sub site should work. Check to see if there are unique permissions on the document library itself or any of those folders they are not seeing.

  • I spoke with Microsoft on Friday. They told me that everyone needs view permissions in order to share stuff. is that true? Do I need to grant any type of permissions at the Team Site Collection level in order for people with Full Control of the a sub site to be able to share out stuff? Feb 16, 2015 at 17:22
