Access Management on sharepoint Online

Konstantinos Marantos 21 Reputation points

Hi all,
I have a problem with a SharePoint site. The site is created as teams site and i chose the project management template. The rights that the owners have are correct. All the other users should be members that can only edit-create things in document library and in SharePoint list. The members they should not be able to edit the entire page (i found the solution by giving to members read rights on the home.aspx). The members should also not be able to edit the navigation bar on the left side of the pare. I want the edit button on the left navigation bat not be accessible or visible to the members. Could anyone be willing to help me?

Thank you in advance.

    Updated Answer ====================

    Please run the below PnP Powershell code as an admin to change group permission

    #Variables for Admin Center & Site Collection URL  
    $AdminCenterURL = ""  
    $SiteURL = ""  
    #Connect to SharePoint Online  
    #User Account is Global administrator and SharePoint Site administrator  
    Connect-SPOService -url $AdminCenterURL -Credential (Get-Credential)  
    #sharepoint online change group permissions  
    #"EditTest" is my custom permission level  
    Set-SPOSiteGroup -Site $SiteURL -Identity "SiteName Members" -PermissionLevelsToRemove "Edit" -PermissionLevelsToAdd "EditTest"
