How to Manage SharePoint Permissions as a Site Collection Admin

In this article, we will be discussing the benefits of using SPDocKit combined with a farm license to manage SharePoint permissions as a site collection administrator.

Managing SharePoint permissions and site collections can be more than overwhelming. First of all, it takes a lot of skill in order to manage a company’s site collections, let alone an entire SharePoint environment. And when you think about it, it takes even more time to do it manually. That’s the reason we’ve created SPDocKit.

SPDocKit is a management and administration tool designed for generating SharePoint farm documentation. SPDocKit helps you set up a farm based on best practices, manage SharePoint permissions, track configurations, compare farms, and monitor farm health.

Manage SharePoint permissions like a pro

With SPDocKit, site collection management takes only a few clicks. This means that the site administrator doesn’t have to spend hours on end poking around on SharePoint. Add to that the SPDocKit workstation license, and you can do permission management wonders from your PC workstation.

Install SPDocKit on your workstation to view your site collections and modify user permissions with SPDocKit permissions wizards.

Our new workstation license allows site collection admins to avoid having to connect to the SPDocKit server in order to manage site collections and permissions. Whether you have SharePoint on-premise, SharePoint Online or a hybrid, you can view your site collections directly from your PC workstation. Keep in mind that you have to have site collection administrator permissions for this.

You can manage SharePoint permissions, move users in and out of groups, break or restore permission inheritance, clone or transfer permissions, and much more. Here’s a list of things you can successfully manage from your SPDocKit PC workstation:

  • Restoring SharePoint permission inheritance
  • Managing SharePoint groups
  • Transfering and cloning SharePoint permissions
  • Managing SharePoint Site collections

SPDocKit and its multiple features make SharePoint and SharePoint clean up sound like an easy task. It gives you a better overview of your site hierarchy.

Imagine you have been assigned to set up permissions for a new employee. Then of course comes a time when once-given permissions must be moved, cloned, transferred or even removed—instance, when an employee gets transferred to a different department.

Or imagine you needed to grant an employee the exact same permissions as those of his or her team members. You can also modify permissions for a department site and create new groups and assign users to those different groups. SPDocKit wizards help you deal with these everyday SharePoint management situations and much more.

Download SPDocKit right away and see for yourself how our tool can save you the most important resources: time. If you need a SharePoint Online permissions tool, we can warmly suggest you our SharePoint and Office 365 governance tool – Security Manager.

Dear reader, this is the functionality of our former product, SysKit Security Manager. Check out our new cloud-based Microsoft 365 governance solution, SysKit Point, to monitor user activity, manage permissions, make reports, and govern your users and resources.
