Enabling NewFolder And Disabling NewDocument RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    excuse me.

    I have a problem.

    I want users can create only their own  FOLDER and can not create DOCUMENT in a document library.  because I want to categorize the folders.

    Consider you want each user can create his own Folder therefore you most not permit them to create Document at first level.

    At the next level they can create documents.

    How I can do this?

    Thank you.

  • You can remove the document content type from All levels, but there is no capability to remove it at just one level.  I would normally accomplish this by using an Event Receiver when they save a file to make sure it isn't in the root folder when they save it.  Even if you could find a way to keep users from seeing the document new button when in the root folder that wouldn't prevent them from uploading a document to the root folder or saving a pre-created document there.  An Event Receiver would take care of all these situations.
