SharePoint Permissions... Part 1
 
SharePoint Services 3.0 has five permission levels by default. Particular permissions are associated with these permission levels. The site owner has the privilege to assign these permission levels with different users and/or groups, modify which permissions are associated with these permission levels and add new permission levels according to his needs.
Note: Limited and Full Control levels cannot be modified.
 
Default Permission Levels in Windows SharePoint
 
Permission Level
Description
Full Control
Contains all permissions and is automatically given to the Site name Owners group. This permission cannot be modified or deleted.
Design
Users have the ability to create and edit lists, libraries, and pages. They can also apply borders, themes, CSS sheets in the website. This permission level is not assigned to any group but is there for the site owner’s use.
Contribute
These are the permissions given to the site name members by default. These members are able to add, edit and delete items in already existing lists and document libraries.
Read
This is the read-only access of the website. This is assigned to the site name Visitors by default. Users with this permission level can see pages and items, open items and documents.
Limited Access
This doesn’t give the assigned users access to the entire site, but to specific lists, items, libraries or documents. In order to be able to access these, the user must have permission to open the parent Website and read shared data (ex theme, navigation bars). This permission level cannot be modified or deleted.
 
 
List, site and person permissions

Permissions are categorized as:
·         list permissions: permissions related to accessing lists and libraries
·         site permissions: permissions related to accessing sites. Pages and permissions
·         personal permissions: permissions related to creating personal views of web pages

Have you had any experience using the "Use Client Integration Features" permission. I've disabled this feature in a custom permission level, but that didn't seem to restrict client integration functionality. Any help appreciated.

SharePoint permissions are quite difficult to get a grip on them... I suggest that you will create a new SharePoint site and experiment on it as to get familiar with the concept.

Are you making use of subsites or is this on the main site?

These are "main site" permissions (ie no parents). I deliberately created a new user so that the user didn't inadvertently have Site Collection privileges. I guess I'm trying to find out exactly what the "Use Client Integration Features" is supposed to do. It sounds self-explanatory, but I have been unable to find further depth. I understand the use and inter-dependence of other permissions.

Steffi,
I am on a subsite with subordinate sites to that. All the permissions on the subsite and subordinate sites are gone and I am at a loss of what to do.

Hi, all!

I want to provide helpful tool for SharePoint Permissions.

Our company developed a small web part for determining effective permissions for the users around SharePoint sites. You can read more about it at http://bit.ly/cOe6oT or download it free from our company site http://www.myitechnology.com

Regards!
