Apologies for basic question, but im stumped! Ive granted site visitors read access but they cant see any items in any list. If i set the permissions to contribute/read then they can see the items.

I have:

  • Created site with custom datasheetview list and added some items
  • Granted site visitors Read permission at the site level
  • Checked List permissions are same as site (Read for visitors)
  • Checked List settings>Advanced>Item-Level Permissions are set to Read All Items
  • Created another test list (after the read permissions were granted to visitors) and added some items with same settings as above.
  • Checked the versioning settings are set to no content approval, no versioning and "any user with read can see draft items"
  • Checked user is listed with read permissions in the Check Permissions
  • Created a document library and uploaded a file, which the read only user can see and open fine

So documents seem ok but lists are not working as i would expect.

What am i missing here guys, this is driving me mad!

  • You can't view a list in datasheet view with read only permissions. Are they able to view the items in a standard list view? – Nate Jul 27 '16 at 15:01

This is by design, users with read only permission can't get into a datasheet view because that is an edit operation, as evident when you up their permission to contribute.

Set the default view of the list to a standard view and they can see the data.
