I had a huge mental blank today, so I thought I would share this experience with you.
- You have a Custom List, or any other type of list which inherits Item (?)
- You need to ensure that users can only view and or/edit their own items in the list
Simple – just go to your list, click actions -> list settings. Then under the General section, click advanced settings. You will see a section in there with a few radio buttons that let you choose these options. Wow, that was hard (NOT!).
Why might you get confused here?
The biggest reason is that you will not find these settings for document libraries
Yes, you heard right – you do not get this option when using the document library list def.
If you really really really need this functionality, refer to this blog post here which tells you how you can hack the templates to get this option:
Hope this helps!
