SharePoint List Permissions - Users should be able to add items but not to edit, change or delete after creation.

Hi,

I created a custom list and want to set the permissions so a certain group, so that users:

- can add items to the list
- can only see their own items
- cannot change, remove or delete their own items after adding an item

Is that somehow possible? (in an automated way using maybe workflows?)

Thanks,
Daniel.

The way to achieve this is with a List Event Receiver. It involves a little coding but is not too complicated.

Before an item is updated this would capture the event and cancel it if the user didn't have the permissions you specify.

Here's one example, internet has many more:

yagyashree: None of those activities are going to prevent edit in the way balluff asked as far as I can see. Which activity did you have in mind?

Hello JamieMcAllister: i was waiting for you to respond since i start to participate in the forum. I see that you are a sharepoint Sage, which i would also like to become.

well regarding your question, the list level permission can be set by creating a custom permission group and adding user inside the custom group. It is some thing like modifying the out of the box "Contributor" group with little trimming.

The tool is to guide or use with some know-how of editing/modifying permission.

yagyashree: thanks for the reply. Setting a custom permission via a workflow that fires on item creation could be a possibility. Kudos!

Out of 3 first 2 are easy to achieve by just modifying the CONTRIBUTOR permission group. You just have to remove the Edit permission from the custom group so that users can't '- cannot change, remove or delete their own items after adding an item"

Thanks for all the posts. I was hoping to not implement an Event Handler but since seems to be the best solution. The custom workflow activities are great but not exactly what I needed so I didnt mark this as an answer.

Thanks,
Daniel.
