As explained in a previous post, I suggested to inherit as many of your permissions as possible. In other words, your apps will all have the same permissions as the parent site.

Should you “break” inheritance on some of the apps this is a pretty neat way to check these unique permissions. Go to your Site Settings > Site Permissions. Click on Show these Items:

“Some content on this site has different permissions from what you see here.  Show these items.

You can click on Manage Permissions next to the app to modify settings.


Cool right? Tomorrow I’ll show you how to check the permissions for a specific person on a site.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
