New Contributor


i have sharepoint and two shared folders in network wich content documents pdf, xls and image

i would like to make library with permission limited to access those content without import in local sharepoint server.

limited permission is view only without download or upload

is it possible in sharepoint 2013?

@lara2005 Hi! I am not sure what you mean: What are you trying to do with your permission level? Are you a Member of a Site in SharePoint and are you trying to share a link to other members in your Tenant? If you could share more information, it would be helpful...
