Difference between SharePoint “View only” and “Read” permission level

Posted in Sharepoint by Abhishek Bhowmick on May 4, 2011

View Permission – Users with Read only permissions can view the content using Client side application like Excel or InfoPath. It allows users to open a Web site, list, or folder in order to access items inside that container. View items in lists, documents in document libraries, and view Web discussion comments.

Read Permission – Users with View only permissions cannot view the content using Client side application like Excel or InfoPath. Like they can view only Server side rendering items.It allows Users to View items in lists, documents in document libraries, and view Web discussion comments. Open Items and View the source of documents with server-side file handlers.
