WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, assign the Design permissions to all the users who want to use the Show Shared View function on the SharePoint site. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect to the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Web site or to the SharePoint Server 2007 Web site. To do this, use a user account that has administrator permissions to the site collection.
  2. Click Site Actions, and then click Site Settings.
  3. On the Site Settings page, click People and groups under Users and Permissions.
  4. On the People and Groups page, click New, and then click Add Users.
  5. On the Add Users Central Administration page, type DomainName\UserName in the Users/Groups box, click Check Names, click to select the check box for the Design permission under Give Permission, and then click OK.

    Note Replace DomainName\UserName with the actual domain name and the actual user name. To add a user to a SharePoint group, select a group in the Add users to a SharePoint group list under Give Permission.
