I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

"View your client tasks and records."?

I am assuming you are trying to stay away from the "you" and "your" references ...

Something like ... "Only able to view entered records or clients associated with assigned tasks" ... but I don't quite like this wording yet. I'll keep rolling it around.

Too short is not always good for clarity.

Try this:

You can view your own records and the records of any client assigned to  you.

Very clear and unambiguous.

Hi guys,
1. I cannot use "you"  or " your" because the admin is selecting a permission type for a specific user
2.  I need to mention "own records" because she/he can only view the records he/she added.
3. "Only able to view entered records or clients associated with assigned tasks" This is what I need but shorter.

Thank you all.

This prevents clarity and there is no way to be unambiguous without "you" or "your"

Try:  Owner can change own record or any record assigned to this owner.

User can change own record or any record assigned to this user.

If I use present tense, how doest that sound? I think it captures the meaning "can view"  or  "viewable"

"View only assigned or personally entered records"

Or

"View own record and client tasks assigned"

That could work and is close to what I suggested above.

>>"View only assigned or personally entered records"

I'm far from an English major but I it seems like a fragment to me.

"What" can view?

I like where SLIGHTWV is going ... with a slight change ... Only assigned tasks, associated clients and personally entered records are viewable.

Even it is not very clear my favorite until now is "View own record and client tasks assigned".
(If it does not have a grammer problem!)

It works but some persons may be confused. My own suggested immediately above is a bit longer but very clear.

The answer to this question depends on where the sentence is to be used and who the audience is.  If we knew more we could be more precise.

Slight variation:

"Only a user's assigned tasks, associated clients and personally entered records are viewable. "
