ForumPass Permissions

Site Users and Permissions

Site Collection Administrator has full control (over site collection and all sub-sites). Please note this is a privileged account typically given to an organization’s IT function and not a typical user.

Upon site creation, three default user groups are established:

    • Visitors: read rights
    • Members: contribute rights (can view, add, update, delete list items and documents)
    • Owners: full control (full control over site)

However, you can create additional user groups in order to manage unique permissions for those groups of users.

To delete Unique Permissions, select Delete Unique Permissions from the Site Permissions page.This reverts your sub-site to the permissions held by your parent site.
