How do I hide sharepoint libraries / lists in a oneplace connection?
New to using OnePlace. My role is as an end user support person from an information management perspective not IT.
When my users add a connection to sharepoint via oneplacedoc explorer they can see libraries and lists that are not visible to them when in sharepoint. (they are lists and libraries that are only accessed via the Site Contents which end users do not have access to.)
From OnePlace, in settings > navigation I have checked the Hide System Lists and Libraries box and restarted the application but these lists and libraries are still visible.
My users are not able to do anything with these list and libraries from oneplace.
I would like to know if there is anyway to hide them?

I have had to resort to hiding the library/list using SharePoint Designer's 'Hide from browser' checkbox under the General Settings for that particular list.
I can appreciate that the selection of libraries that an admin may wish to hide might not be easily achieve using the template ID. There have even been occasions where we need users to have Read permissions to a library/list, however we do not wish for them to see it appear in the Navigation Tree.
Solution Profiles can accommodate some scenarios, however they are not appropriate for all.
Adding the ability to omit a library/list from showing in the navigation tree is a reasonable request.
Hopefully this helps.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Using OnePlaceMail/Docs there is the ability to hide system lists and libraries from the end user (includes Site Assets). This can be set via the UI, under OnePlaceMail Settings, Navigation tab. However, if a user has Read only permission in Sharepoint they will still be able to see the List/Library.
if read only permission is taken off for the user for a particular List/Library, they will not be able to see the List/Library in OnePlace.
This can also applied using OnePlaceLive, where greater functionality is available to restrict which libraries are presented to the end user (for example, the ability to remove all lists from being presented, or specific template ID numbers).
More information on OnePlaceLive can be found on the link below
