Release Notes

Sharepoint List Security Manager allows users to configure, who should have Read/Write items for your list/library across your farm.

The utility allows you to set List/Library Read permissions to: a) Everyone b) Only Author
Write permissions to: a) Everyone b) Only Author c) None

The utility is developed using Windows Forms in C#, it is very intuitive and user-friendly. It can be used for all types of Sharepoint Lists and addresses the permission limitation of document libraries, where two contributors can modify each others documents.

I personally faced this issue, while I was developing a Knowledge Base Portal, we were dealing with a lot of document libraries in this project, but unlike Lists, there was no OOTB way to set who should Read or Edit documents within the library.

Sharepoint Lists have this built-in mechanism in place OOTB, so when you go to List Settings -> Advanced Settings you can set this permission, but the same is missing for a Document Library.
