SharePoint 2013 – Set permissions on item level


Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk about a change in the interface of SharePoint 2013, which can be confusing for people who are familiar with older versions.

This change affects the way you see the permission of an item.

When you select an item in SharePoint 2013 and looking at the ribbon, there is no longer the “Permissions” button present in previous versions. Instead there is the “Shared With” button.


By clicking this button, we can see the permissions of the current item


In this pop-up there is two links:  “Invite People” and “Advanced”

1.       « Invite people » :


This pop-up allows you to add people to read / write the document, it will break the rights on the item and make the changes.

NB : This pop-up can also be accessed directly via the “Share” button on the ribbon


For example, I added “Everyone” with “can view”.By clicking again on “Shared with” I have this result


2.       « Advanced » :

This link allows you to find the interface that we had in previous versions


We can see that after my first operation, the document has unique permissions.

Hope this help.


SharePoint 2013 Certifications – MCSA : Windows Server 2012


Hello everyone,

In a previous post, I was talking about the SharePoint 2013 certification process.

To become MCSE: SharePoint, one of the prerequisites is to hold the MCSA: Windows Server 2012.

If you hold certification “MCITP: SharePoint 2010 Administrator“, you can pass the certification Exam 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012

If like me you are looking for study material, be aware that there is a free Jump Start on Microsoft Virtual Academy site.

This course is a 2 day course speaking of a 5-day course which is a condensed of 3 5-days course … in short it goes fast! But it brings good informations!
