How to Set Permissions for Google Sites

Footprints Public Solution #92376  Updated March 2016

To change permissions for your Google Site, use the following steps:

  1. Log in to Oakland University Webmail Powered by Google (https://webmail.oakland.edu) with your NetID username and NetID password.

  2. Click on Sites located at the top-left of the page.
  3. Click on the site you wish to change permissions to open the site.
  4. Once the site is open, click on the More icon on the top-right of the page to view the drop down menu.

  5. Select Share and Permissions.
  6. In the Permissions box, click Change.
  7. Select the radio button next to the option you want for your site. Click "Save."
  8. If you choose to make your site public or viewable to anyone with the link, you can also allow that same set of people to edit your site by clicking on the drop-down next to the user's name. You can specify whether the specific user "Is owner", "Can edit", or "Can view".
  9. If you have changed permission settings for a user, click "Share and Save Changes." If you did not change any permission settings for a user or if you have clicked "Save Changes", click "Close".
