"Page-level permissions," is a new feature introduced today and that allow you to control who can view and edit your Google Site on a page by page basis. "Using page-level permissions, you can make some pages private for certain users while keeping other pages public for everyone to see. For instance, let's say you have a Google Site that you've shared with your team and your manager. You can allow your team to see one set of pages, let your manager edit another set of pages, and keep yet another set of pages private for only you," informs Eric Zhang, Software Engineer.

"Only site owners have the ability to enable this feature, which is turned off by default for new and existing sites. To turn on page-level permissions, go to More Actions > Sharing and Permissions.

From there, click Enable page-level permissions. Then, in the dialog box, click Turn on page-level permissions.

Once page-level permissions is enabled, you'll have three options to choose from:

  • allow a page to inherit all of your site-level permissions
  • elect to include future site-level changes to a page
  • prevent a page from inheriting any future changes made at the site-level," explains Zhnag.
