Sharepoint 2007,

I want users that create an issue, only to be able view there own issues and no one elses.
I don't want them to be able to view "All Issues"
Where and how do you set this ?

I don't have access to sharepoint atm, but i believe it's List settings>advanced settings>read access 'only their own'> edit access 'only their own'.

Thanks for the response,

I went into list settings and advanced, but couldn't see that setting unfortunately.

Appears the ability to restrict users to viewing/editing only their own entries is not available in this type of list using the options i advised :(

You could create a 'custom list' to mimick the tracking list, ie, create your own columns to capture the same information, then set the options i advised under advanced list settings...downside i have found with this is that the 'assigned to' field does not send emails when ownership is assigned.

Or, create another view with filters that meet your needs, then make this the default view. Downisde is that it doesn't stop users finding & selecting the 'All items' view.

Sorry i can't provide any more help. Not sure if it's possible to do it other ways, such as SP Designer or Visual Studio.

Good Luck.

Thanks again for that,
Yeah, I had tried the way you mentioned but as you said, it has it's downsides,

Strange, I would have thought this would have been fairly straigh forward.
