Security trim list

Hi,

I have a requirement where one particular manager should be able to view all the items of the list and be able to edit them. However, individual members should only be able to view and edit the items that are assigned to them.

How can I achieve this in a list view. Please note that, using a [Me] filter probably is not an option because, if the user is smart enough, he can create a list view that shows all items to him.

Please help..

You can set to restrict visibility in the list settings so people can only see their own items.

If it's acceptable to give the manager owner permissions on that list (not the whole site!) they'll be able to see all items and edit, but those with lesser permissions won't.

Hi Jamie,

I do not see this option in the list that I created using "Issue List Template". Can you please  list the steps?

Hi Jamie,

But this option is based on who creates the item. But the requirement is once an item is assigned by the manager, the items should follow the security trimming. i.e , the user should be able to edit and see the items that are assigned to him.

I see your thinking now. You're right, the above doesn't work for that.

In fact I'd say the only thing that would work is that the Manager would have to set permissions on each task. Dropping down the action menu and selecting Manage Permissions. They'd have to set the permissions so that only the assignee could view it.

Cumbersome but that's the only secure way to do it. Otherwise you're back to [Me] filters and views...
