Stop user access to a Site, but still allow to send data to a list

Brass Contributor

Hi,

I think I know the answer but just need clarification.

I have a site that contains a number of lists.  These lists are populated by users submitting a form via a PowerApp and Flows moving data.

Currently the I have the usual three groups (Owners, Members & Visitors).
I don't want visitors seeing the site contents list but still need them to be able to send data.

If I remove the contents of the Site Visitor

But keep 'Everyone except external users' in the 286467 Visitor group

Would this do the job??  I think it will!!

But the reason I'm asking is there is unique permissions involved..

Would this still work???

@Chris_Clark1968 you'll just need to break inheritance permissions and give your users only Contribute access to the the lists so they can add/update/delete items but nothing else.

Contribute still allows 'View'??

The list above seems to differ to the definitions of the permissions in the attached link??

SharePoint Permissions - A Comprehensive Guide! - SharePoint Diary

So is contribute still the best level to provide to enable users to write, submit data to a list but not allow them to see the data if they search for the file name or access the site contents??
