File level securiy control in WSS2.0
Hi, everyone: We have SharePoint v2 site serving, now in a document library we would like to apply below demands: 1. each normal user could only see his own uploaded docs, for example limit the viewers they can access. 2. admins can modify the site settings and create personal views to see all docs. However, we found that once the doc URL is shared with others who have read access to the lib, they can see the content of the doc anyway. I guess this was caused due to WSS2.0 has only lib level security control? can we walk around this so that no users can view other ppl's doc, unless they have been assigned specific higher permission role. If it is impossible to do so in WSS2.0, how about WSS3.0 or MOSS? Thanks and best regards, MySTfrom Finland :D

You can build a workflow for this Doc Lib and when a file is uploaded set permissions only for the user that has uploaded it. You build a workflow with visual studio or build it with Sharepoint Designer. If you decide to use a Sharepoint designer workflow , you can use this actions at Codeplex http://spdactivities.codeplex.com/ Grant Permission on Item - Allows granting of specified permission level on a spicified item

Yes, WSS 2.0 do not have Item-Level permission, this is a new feature begins from WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007. If you could upgrade to WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007, then you could follow Fernando's suggestion.Sincerely, Lambert Qin Posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.
