SharePoint gives the possibility to customize the permissions on list level. it's possible to set permissions (roles) to single users or groups. There is also the possibility the create a new role with custom defined permissions.

Go to the Home WebsiteSettings (http://portal/_layouts/15/settings.aspx) -> Website Permissions (http://portal/_layouts/15/user.aspx)-> Permission Levels (http://portal/_layouts/15/role.aspx) -> Add Role.

By adding a new Role you can specify what a role is permitted to do. In your case add only the Add Elements.

Bit of a late reply to this! But the best way to make an upload library is to use Document Approval in Versioning settings. Then set the Only Approvers can see minor versions.

  • But now how to find out what is Used or not in My Site Pages ?
