First level: SharePoint Permissions Settings

Each SharePoint list and event list has "Permissions for this list" settings. Here is how you can find them:

By default, the settings for each list are inherited from the general settings of the current site. Information about this appears in a yellow window when you go to settings. If you click on the name of the site whose permissions inherit the selected sheet, you will be brought to the permissions settings of that site.

The Permissions Levels menu will appear in the site's header. You can see all the current permissions settings for user groups by clicking it.

You can create user groups with different permissions by clicking "Add a Permission Level." You can give users permissions ranging from only viewing the sheet to complete control. Virto Calendar Overlay inherits these same permissions.

From these list permissions, only four are relevant to the Virto Calendar Overlay.

Suppose you want to configure a user's ability to add, edit, delete, and view calendar events. In that case, you must select or deselect these settings:

  • Add Items - the ability to add new events to the calendar

  • Edit Items - the ability to edit any calendar events

  • Delete Items - the ability to delete any calendar event

  • View Items - the ability to only view the calendar events in lists

Outlook Calendar has a similar logic: different permissions can be granted to various users, from "Read Only" to "Delegate" access, where an authorized user can edit and create events on behalf of another user. And Virto Calendar Overlay inherits them accordingly.
