Documents Site Help

Occasional Contributor

Hi

 

I am new to Sharepoint.  As a Azure administrator I have created a Documents Site in Sharepoint.  I have full permissions on the site but when I open a document edit and try to save it, it says read only you do not have permission to save the file.        This is in the web portal and via OneDrive. 

 

I want sharepoint to replace our current Windows File Server this is my aim.

 

Help thanks.

@glenbow Are you trying to create and edit files in SharePoint or in OneDrive?

 

Follow Microsoft documentation: Edit a document in a document library

it doesnt allow me to edit documents in the Sharepoint UI.

I dont understand why it doesnt as I am the main administrator of the Azuure domain.

@glenbow Are you able to access the site permissions setting for your SharePoint site?

 

Try hitting URL in below format in browser tab: 

 

https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/siteName/_layouts/15/user.aspx?

If you are able to access above URL, check what are the permissions granted to user account you are using to edit files.

It will show you resulting permissions like this:

User account should have contribute or higher permissions (Edit, Design or Full Control). Check User permissions and permission levels
