Using the Administrators field to control access to individual documents in the Domino® Directory

Most types of documents in the Domino® Directory contain an Administration tab with an Administrators field on it. To allow an administrator who has Author access to the directory to modify a single document, enter the administrator's name in the Administrators field.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator open the server that stores the Domino® Directory you want to change.
  2. Click the Files tab and open the Domino® Directory.
  3. Open any document and click Edit.
  4. Click the Administration tab.
  5. In the Administrators field, enter the names of individual administrators or the name of a group of administrators who can edit this document.
    Note: The designated administrator(s) cannot modify the Owner or Administrators fields even though they have access to edit the document. For a group document, the designated administrators can edit only the Group Members field.
  6. Click Save & Close.
