You can't specifically restrict editing. However, you can only edit your own files unless you have a particular privilege.

I actually ran some tests and found the UI was really messy here. It properly enforces the permissions, but it doesn't work well. I've made a number of fixes in a hot-fix attached to this issue:
0003746: Various file/media library fixes, mostly relating to permissions - Composr CMS feature tracker

As for adding a column, the cms/pages/modules/filedump.php file would need to be edited – the table is built-up in code in here.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
