Security within SharePoint 2013

Editing permissions

Suppose that a project has completed and you no longer want the team to add or edit the project’s supporting documents. The flexibility of SharePoint 2103 gives you the ability to easily make changes to permission level of an individual or a group.

Edit site permissions for an individual or group

  1. On the Home page, click the Settings button (the small gear icon next to the name of the logged-on user). On the menu that appears, click Site Settings.
