Personalizing SharePoint webpart for better user experience

Hello Experts,

I am trying to give users an unique permission on our enterprise dashboard to minimize and expand the web parts that a individual user would want to see. The challenge here is that this settling also allows them to delete or look at the web part properties.

This is the least permission level i can drill down to while i created custom permissions on the site. Please suggest if you know of something that can allow users to just minimze and restore webparts and not even give them options to see its properties. I am using MOSS2007.

You will have to set this for each web part. In the Out of the box web parts thee is a section advanced in the web part proprties, where you can Allow (or not) to minimize, close, hide, zone change, connections and editing in personal view.

Thanks for the quick response. I have already tried that. When i select only "Allow Minimize" and deselect everything it does not give the users even the drop down to minimize.

I followed whats on this link http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sharepointcustomization/thread/9034dd5c-12e1-45a5-a4e7-dd31a0384e89

Thanks!

You can chnage the behaviour of the zones in SharePoint Designer. The following link will show you an example:
