Privileges Requirements

SPElements Android applications for SharePoint utilizes the Microsoft SharePoint web services in order to access SharePoint.
The security on these web services requires the user be a member of a Site Group with the Browse Directories site privileges.
In SharePoint 2007, the Reader Site Group is the only group not having this right by default.
It should be added if members of the Readers group are expected to use SPElements Android applications.

The following steps describe how the Brose Directory right is added to the Readers group of a site [SharePoint 2007 or WSS3]:

  1. In the Site Actions menu, in the Site Settings sub menu, select People and Groups.
  2. 2. Click Site Permissions on the bottom left.
  3. 3. In the Settings menu, select Permission Levels.
  4. 4. Click the permission to which you would like to add browsing, in our case Read.
  5. 5. Check Browse Directories - Enumerate files and folders in Web site using SharePoint Designer and Web DAV interfaces.
  6. 6. Click Save.

  3. On the left, in “Users and Permissions” -> “People and Groups”
  4. Select the desired user
