Is there a permission or other setting that would allow users to create personal views in a library/list where they are contributors but NOT public views?

1 Answer 1


There is a specific permission called Manage Personal Views under Personal Permissions or simply if you provide users with Contribute, edit or Full control, thy can create and manage personal views.

Manage Personal Views

I guess you need to be a site collection admin to create a permssion level. Add this specific permission to that permission level and provide users with access to that permission level.

  • Hmm, I'll look at that. I'm a site collection level admin. Right now it seems like anyone can create personal & public views and I just want to limit creation of public ones. Thanks! Mar 29, 2018 at 20:26
