Hi All,

we have more then one library within the Libraries folder or headline and normaly
everybody can see them.

But I just want to limit this view for special people. For example I have library a and b:

Libraries
library a
library b

Now people a logs on to Sharepoint and shall only see library a under Libraries and should not see library b.

Same for people b, they shall ony see library b and not library a.

How can I manage this? Everything I do shows up both libraries or none.

You can do this by restricting access to the library or by setting an Audience on the link.

If users dont even have read access to the Library they wont see it.

Alternatively;


Create an Audience that covers the people you want to see the link.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263065(v=office.14).aspx

Go into site settings -> Navigation Settings. Edit the link to the library and at the bottom of that box, select the Audience that you want to see the link.

The link will now only show for members of the Audience you specified.

Hi,

looks good so far. Last question befor I would like to grant the points to you:

Have you any idea why I cannot see the Active Directory security groups when I want to enter the "Value"? I have selected User and as Operator "Member of"?
