NOTE: View the New Admin Experience version of this article.
A View Permissions setting can be applied to both Navigation Items (i.e., pages) and Content Items on those pages, enabling you to control who can access/view them.
The process (and available settings) is the same for both:
- Select the desired page OR Content Item and click Edit.
- Click Edit in the View Permissions field and select the desired setting:
- Select Everyone to make it public, meaning it's visible to ALL users, regardless of whether they're members or not. If desired, you can set the Hide after logged-in? option to Yes to hide the page/content from logged in users, allowing you to have public (or other specific) pages/content on your site that's automatically hidden after users log in.
- Select Logged In to make it private, meaning it's only visible to users who are logged in.
- Select Custom Permissions to choose which Security Groups can access the page/content. You'll be able to select from the default system Security Groups and those created specifically for your organization. Custom permissions allow you to restrict access in a more granular, specific manner, enabling much tighter control over who can access your site's pages and content. See Understand Security Groups to learn more about site security and Security Groups.
NOTE: Setting a view permission for pages also applies to any sub-pages within it. Also, if you don't set a view permission, then anyone can view the page or Content Item.
