Creating custom Permissions in SharePoint

I’m writing this blog to basically remind myself on how easy it is to create custom permissions in SharePoint.  I often forget some of the easiest administration processes within SharePoint.  More often than none i’m tasked to create custom SharePoint permissions to only allow certain groups or people specific permissions such as only having the right to add or update list items or documents but not have the right to delete them.  This custom permission is probably the most wanted by many of my clients.

To accomplish this on the SharePoint site/page you would like to have custom SharePoint permissions:

1.  Click on Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Advanced Permissions
2.  Click Settings drop down select Permission Levels
3.  Click the Add a Permission Level button
4.  Give the new Permission a name and check the boxes next to the custom permission you would like to set.
5.  *Note* some permissions require others to be enabled so checking off certain permissions will result in others being checked off automatically
6.  Select permissions for List Permissions, Site Permissions, Personal Permissions.
7.  Click the Create button. 
8.  New permission is created!
9.  Go back to the Permissions for your site/page and click the Add button, select the group or person who will be applied this permission level
10.  Select the custom permission you created!
11.  Boom!  Now that group or person only have those permissions.
