Create roles for users

Copper Contributor



Is there a way in Sharepoint/OneDrive to create roles for our users? We host our shared files via Sharepoint and user's access it via the shortcut created on their work OneDrive account. We would like them to access and work on these files, but don't want any employee accidentally mass-downloading the entire directory of the file share. Is there a way to create some sort of role or group for users, like an author, editor, and collaborator?

you can use different permission levels for different SharePoint groups, in SharePoint goups, you can use AD groups. Here are more information about permission levels and SharePoint groups:
