SharePoint Column/View Permission by BoostSolutions

SharePoint Column/View Permission allows administrators and list owners to manage access to all website content by setting field-level and view-level permissions for any list in a SharePoint site. With it, you can designate which users and groups have access rights to column contents, a particular list view, or even the ability to enter or change data in a particular list field, thereby enabling you to securely store both public and confidential corporate data within the same list.

Show or Hide Columns in a SharePoint List View

  • SharePoint Column/View Permission provides the ability to secure access to individual columns in list views or document libraries, making it an ideal solution for consolidating a broad spectrum of information into a centralized location without exposing secured data to unauthorized users. After configuring permissions for a SharePoint list view, only authorized users will see the content of a secure column as if it were a normal column, while unauthorized users will not see the content of the column at all. Column/View Permission also offers the ability to set individual columns as "read-only" in any list view, so that information can be viewed, but not edited, by users.

Form-level Permissions

  • With SharePoint Column/View permission, you can also assign form-level permissions for the "create new item", "edit item" and "view item" forms, allowing you to hide specific fields completely, or restrict them to read-only access so users can see them, but cannot make changes. Now you can create custom forms for different employees, departments, and roles to streamline the data-entry process while at the same time limiting access to information.

View-level Permissions

  • View-level permission settings in Column/View Permission control whether SharePoint list views are visible or hidden. By setting a default permission level for each view in a SharePoint list, you can ensure that your confidential information is accessible only to those whom you have granted access, for example, selecting "Hidden" as your default view permission level means that new user accounts created will not have access to any views unless you specifically grant them access permission.
  • Column/View Permission also gives you the ability to disable the ribbon buttons on the ribbon interface for each view in the list, meaning you can choose to disable any of the actions available by default in SharePoint without necessitating complex custom coding.

Set Permissions According to Conditions

  • Administrators and list owners can manage field-level access to items in a SharePoint list with conditions, so that the values of other fields in the same list or even fields from other SharePoint lists can determine access rights. Conditions will determine whether an item is fully visible, read-only, or hidden, and the parameters can be adjusted to apply to all users, a specific group or department, or even an individual employee.
Hide or read-only views in list so that vital content cannot be seen or edited.

Gives great value for your money

SharePoint Column/View Permission, a SharePoint add-on from BoostSolutions (formerly SharePointBoost), provides functionality that many SharePoint admins sorely miss--hidden/read-only columns in lists, hidden/read-only views, setting default views per user or group, etc.

At $899 per WFE for the full product and $299 for a "lite" version that includes the most essential features, the Column/View Permission pricing is more than reasonable given that building features that do what this product does would take many, many hours of custom development. In addition, the product works for both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 so there's no upgrade issue.

I gave this product a rating of 5 based on the amount of functionality you're getting for the money.

Not Bad at All

This is a great product for managing column and view permissions. It was easy to use and install. Pretty self explanatory and has some great hidden features like "conditions"

Their support took some time to resolve some questions and issues. Maybe if I bought the "premium support", it would have been faster. It makes more since to give excellent support to all your paying customers. Either way, problems did get solved.

Overall this is a great product.

Product Reviews

Pros
Does exactly what it says it does.
Cons
Support was a bit slow, and they want you to purchase a premium support

Very poor support

Support is very poor and when I asked how solution responds to various scenarios of which they could hardly answer any of the question put to them. I was asked to email test cases and they will respond - waste of my time!
Then the most expensive part of the product is the annual support charge.

If you have a field with read only / hidden permissions the field still appears in the list of fields to select in Personal views and if someone without the correct permissions for the field selects the field for a personal view (datasheet) the view breaks displaying nothing and just hangs. NOT GOOD!

Product Reviews

Pros
Installed the 30 day trial and looked really good and as pervious reviewer said really easy to install.

Cons
Support poor and expensive and easy to break

didn't work for us

the product looked to do exactly as we needed, but we couldn't get it to work, on top of that, our lists are in a broken state now (we tested on dev, so not the end of the world). we're not sure what the issue is, or how to troubleshoot, so we've uninstalled. removing it didn't return out lists back to their previous state, however, so that's no good.

Product Reviews

Pros
seemed to do what we needed, easy install
Cons
didn't really work and caused errors in our lists
