Example of page-level permissions in action
Let's say you are the owner of a website with a Home page at the top and two pages -- called Private Page and Public Page -- underneath it. You want
to share this site with your coworkers and allow them to edit both the Home and Public Page. However, your interns aren't allowed to see the financial
data you keep on Private Page, and only accountants are allowed to edit that data. Everyone else can only view the Private Page.
To set this up:
- From the More actions menu, select Sharing and Permissions.
- In the top right, click Enable page-level permissions.
- In the dialog box, click Turn on page-level permissions.
- Once you have page-level permissions on, you'll see the hierarchy of your site on the left side of the "Sharing and Permissions" page. At the
top, click on the name of your site to set your site's permissions.
- In the dialog box that appears for your site, add everyone in your company and set their access level to Can edit.
- Find your Private page in your site's hierarchy and click on it.
- In the dialog box that appears for your Private Page, select either Start with the list below and include any future changes to Name of
page above or Start with the list below but ignore any future changes to Name of page above.
- While in the dialog box for your Private Page, delete your interns from your page.
- While in the dialog box for your Private Page, set everyone who isn't an accountant or an intern to Can view.
This will make your Private page editable by accountants, restricted for interns, and viewable by everyone else. In addition, everyone will be able to
edit the rest of your site.
