As a site owner, I can create views and mark them as 'public' - however site members can't (by default).

How do I add this particular capability to a group? I don't want them to be able to change the default view.. Just for them to be able to share views that they have created.

Management of public views requires the Manage List permission. You can create a custom permission level or use one of the out-of-the-box permission levels that includes the Manage List permission: Full Control, Design, Manage Hierarchy are a few

Keep in mind that Manage List also enables users to manage list columns or delete the list altogether

  • It was actually a document library, is that the same? So if this permission is granted, the user can delete the entire library? Don't think we want that!

  • Same thing... Manage List also exposes the ability to delete a list and manage list columns.
