I have a document library with 2 public views, currently all users can change the structure of the current view.

I am am looking to achieve the following scenario:

  • Users can change to a different view.
  • Users cant "edit" the view or in-turn save the view publicly.
  • Users should be able to make "personal views" but not public.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

You need to change the user permissions to Contribute instead of Edit. This will solve your problem.
