I have a group of users that I want to be able to only see one view of a SharePoint List and I do not want them t be able to change anything on that list.  What is the best/easiest way to do this?

Thanks.

View level permissions are not possible, however list level permissions are possible. Go to list settings and you will see the icon for list permissions. If there is a read only group, add the users to that group. If not, create a group with read only permission and add them to that group.

Be careful not to click on the site level permission, stick to the list level. If the list is inheriting permissions from a higher level, you may need to break permissions so that the list can have unique permissions.

Hope that helps...
