Hello all,

 

newbie here, please go easy on me!

 

I'm a newbie to Sharepoint, and with the help of a more experienced colleague have recently setup a list for our HR department, within their MS Teams team - so they are able to add it as a tab.

 

One question I have been asked is whether there would be a way to prevent anyone who is not HR (And a member of the team) exporting to Excel.

 

I'm thinking this is not likely to be very easy, as the basis of sharepoint is to share information, and this looks to be a fairly standard part of the interface, but though I would ask the experts in case I have missed something, or some way to filter permissions, or perhaps hide that option for everyone but HR?

 

Thanks in advance,


Dan
