How can I restrict access of certain members to certain documents on Sharepoint?

Jennifer Healy 20 Reputation points

I have created a document library with several folders in SharePoint. There are 11 members who have access to the files but I need some of them to have limited access. I cannot figure out how to limit access of folders to specific members. For example, only those people on the financial team should have the ability to access the financial folder on our document library. Those persons are set up in the system as members.

    Hi @Jennifer Healy,

    You can set permissions on a folder individually by following these steps:

    1.Select the folder and right click->manage access.

    User's image

    2.Advanced Settings.

    User's image

    3.Stop inheriting Permissions.

    User's image

    4.You can grant Permissions to users or groups.

    User's image

    User's image

    User's image

    Or selecting a group and change their permissions. (If you remove a user's permissions, that user is prohibited from accessing the folder.)

    User's image

    You can follow this article to get more information about Permissions.
