The ACL has a couple of valuable check boxes available for Reader and below: "Read public documents" and "Write public documents"
However, we just discovered that there's no option for "Create public documents"
Here's where we would use it.
We define a group of people that have Reader access.
The form's query open event calls a script library that in turn checks a personal profile document to see what version (of the app) the person last opened. If the current version is newer, we automatically clear the cache and suggest that they may want to restart Notes.
Here's the problem: You must have author access or better in order to create a profile document, even if the document is available to public access users.
We'd like, in this scenario, an option to allow users to create public documents.
FYI: we're using Notes 6.5.x clients on Windows boxes.
