I have a document library, in fact a lot of them, where I want some documents to be seen by staff only, where as some document to be seen by students ? I know I can do item level permissions on the document, but when I have several hundred of them, I would like to set permissions on multiple documents in one go, as opposed to going one by one. IS this possible ? Is there a web part that can do this.
Alternatively, is there a programmatic way to do this based on the metadata attached with the documents? Any help much appreciated.
