Page-level permissions

Different permission types for pages

When you create a page, the page will use the permissions of your site by default. You can then change the page so that it has its own permissions. In addition, you can choose whether this page should be visible to new people you add to your site or whether they'll need specific permission from you.

When you change your page's permissions, you'll have three choices:

  • Use the same permissions as the Site
    In this scenario, the page will mirror your site. For example, if you chose this for a specific page, anyone who can view your site can also view this page and anyone who can edit your site will also be able to edit this page.
  • Custom permissions > Inheritance icon Add new users to this page
    In this scenario, the page will start with a list of people you specify. If you add someone to your site, that person will be added to this page with the same permission level as they have for the site.
  • Custom permissions > No inheritance icon Do not add new users to this page
    In this scenario, the page will be disconnected from the rest of your site. For example, if you later allow more people to view your site, you'll have to also go to this page and add them if you want them to see this page.

Regardless of your choice, if you remove someone from your site, they will no longer have access to a specific page unless it is a public page.
