Permission Workflow is a workflow process which allows setting permissions for list items or documents automatically using specified criteria defined on association page of the workflow.
- Automatic permission assignment on document creation and change - This workflow elegantly solves permission absences of SharePoint core. Sharepoint does not support setting of permission for documents or list items based on different criteria. For example, this workflow allows to define different roles for different user groups for content types.
- Special permission for document author - It is possible to set special permission for document author. This allows for every user to have permission to create and edit documents; however, for other users just to read the documents. In this scenario, author cannot delete these documents.
- Document view for other users - It is possible with this workflow to set some documents to be visible for just select users and to be invisible and not editable for other users.
- Can be customized by the vendor.
