Hi Naimish Dave, As far as I know, there is no OOTB way to achieve this function as the permission “Add Items--Add items to lists, add documents to document libraries, and add web discussion comments” means that you give the users “add” permission when you give them “reply” permission. Here are some advices: 1) If you don’t mind, you can edit the item level permission to give the users “reply” permission for every item. (give the users the permission level with “Add Items” permission). 2) You can also do some coding to set the item level permission automatically. Let me know if you have further questions! Hope it is helpful!

Hi, Thats correct, There is no OOTB "Only Reply" Permission. You can use custom Event handler, Through which you can restrict user to add ,Delete, edit item, they can only reply on the thread. Let me know if you want more detailsCheers, Sanjiv Kumar
