It is a Leave calendar, all user enter their leaves, but my boss doesn't want other users to see other's leaves.  Only manager should be able to see all documetns.

The 'normal' user should only have access to this 1 view, the calendar.

If Calendar is not possible is there another solution?

If I create one embedded view in a form, and the user has only one view to access this form... and cannot see another person's request... how do I do this?

You need to add two Readers fields to the leave documents.  One would contain the user's name so they will be abelt to see the documents.  The other should contain a Role you create in the ACL of the database and assign to the Manager, and to the LocalDomainServers group and any other Lotus administrators.

Also, if, after the person requests their leave and saves the document, there probably is a point where you don't want them to modify the request, like after a manager has approved it.  At that point, the user's name needs to be taken out of the author's field, but left in the reader's field.

I've struggled with the same issue, only last week....
Single category is useless (AFAIK) and this readers field didn't work for me.

Marilyn / mshogren, it sounds like it won't work for Zopilote either:

A person's manager will see their own AND their co-workers' documents, won't they?.....

Thank you very much for all your responses.

Actually Crak is rigth, I did want to have two calendar views, one with only USER's documents (even de manager) and another calendar with ALL documents, but given the fact that this looks imposible, I am quite happy with the readers field solution.

One question please, how do revert @Name([CN]; EnteredUsername)?

I explain, sometimes a focal point enter the leaves for some employees (like the big boss), in that case I need to convert "Pedro Gonzalez" to Pedro Gonzalez/XX/YYYY in order for the Reader field to be properly updated?
