I have created a new sub site named “Finance” of type team site and it comes with these 3 default groups:-
Finance Member -----> Contribute Finance Owners -----> Full Control Finance Visitors -----> Read
Currently when I add someone to the members group he can delete list items, which I do not want to have. So I did the following septs to prevent memebers from deleting items and pages:-
I went to the site collection level setting --> site permission --> click on “Permission level”. I click on the built-in “Contribute ” site permission , click on “Copy Permission Level”.
Then I add a new permission level name “Contribute without delete”, and I un-check these 2 check boxes from the permission list ; “Delete versions” & “Delete items”.so in this case I have a copy of the Contribute permission level but without “Delete versions” & “delete items” permissions…
- I went back to the subsite permission, and I change the member group to have the new permission level named “Contrite without delete” instead of “Contribute” & the owner group to have the “contribute” level instead of full control. As follow:-
So can anyone advice if this is the correct approach to have users that can view/edit/create, while they can not delete any data from the subsite..? Thanks
