I don't get it why Permission: Override List Behaviors -

Discard or check in a document which is checked out to another user, and change or override settings which allow users to read/edit only their own items

Is not working the way it should.... I have a list with advanced settings configured to: Read Access

Read items that were created by the user

But the users with a permission level set with override list behaviors permission can't see the items created other than the author... Why oh why?

  • The documents must at least have one published version for the Override List Behaviors to work I think. Before that the items will only show to the creator in the GUI Jun 19, 2013 at 13:48

It only Works with manage lists permissions on, apparently
