Add and Edit Group Permissions in SharePoint 2007(MOSS 2007)

Adding and editing SharePoint group permissions is a central admin task which SharePoint makes very easy through the configuration of permission levels.

If you have created a group in Sharepoint you will likely want to create some custom permissions for the group.

1.Central Admin>Select Site Settings > Advanced Permissions (alternatively click ‘Site Permissions’ in the far left column).
2.Click Settings > Permission Levels

3.Click Add Permission Level4.Name the new permission level and configure the permissions using the checkbox listing and then click Create.

5.Navigate to the Permissions page (you can easily do this using the ‘breadcrumbs’ navigation trail just above the page title).
6.The new permission you just created should now be visible in the Permissions listing and you can select it and click OK. Technically you can have more than two sets of permissions for a Sharepoint group but this is usually not best practice. It is far better to create a single permission level. One exception to this is Delete permissions, as Delete can have serious consequences Delete is sometimes isolated to a dedicated permission level so admins can very clearly see which groups have Delete permissions.
