Item-level Permissions in List Advanced Settings

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Is the "Item-level Permissions" in List Advanced Settings, a security option or is it a way to filter data for the user?
How does it work with the permission done on the item level when breaking inheritance with the list?

Item/Document permissions affect Library/List permissions

When I change the permissions on a item/document in a library/list the permissions are also changed on the library/list even though I stopped inheritance.  When I change the permissions on the library/list it also changes permissions on items/documents in that list even if inheritance is removed.

Dynamic list item title based on date created & regional settings?

I have a list of things that doesn't *need* a title.  However, because sharepoint uses Title for links, RSS etc  I tried generating a title in an event handler.   This would work great if I wasn't basing it on a date field: public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties) { DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(properties.AfterProperties["TestDate"]); properties.AfterProperties["Title"] = dt.ToShortDateString(); base.ItemAdding(properties); } In testing, this sets the title to "8/9/2010" when I selected 8/10/2010 in the date picker.  I figure this is because of the regional settings of my test user.  I can probably correct the title value for 'test user' but that won't fix 'test user in mongolia' who would still see two different values. So What I would like is to have the Title always display the value MyDate in the uesr's locale.  So the field needs to be dynamic not only at edit/update time, but at display time. Does anybody know if this can be accomplished, and more specifically how?

SPD 2010 status 'Canceled' when using action 'Replace List Item Permissions'



I have been experiencing issues with using action "Replace List Item Permissions" with SPD 2010.
When adding an new list item the workflow runs as expected.
When editing the same item later, the workflowstatus gets "Canceled" and the joblog tells me:

09/22/2010 15:55:14.41  w3wp.exe (0x3584) 0x37B4 SharePoint Foundation Workflow Infrastructure 72fv Unexpected AutoStart Workflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: Recursive workflows are not permitted. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAutostartEventReceiver.<>c__DisplayClass1.<AutoStartWorkflow>b__0(SPSite superUserSite, SPWeb superUserWeb)

The Workflow uses the options
- "Start workflow automatically when an item is created"
- "Start workflow automatically when an item is changed"
My environment is:
- MOSS 2010 Enterprise RTM english with german languagepacks
- SharePoint Designer 2010, Version 14.0.4760.1000

Any ideas why this error is occurring and how to resolve it?
Thanks, Stefan.

Item -level permision for list does not work as it should be.


Wondering if anyone have the same problem like me. I'm currently developing a centrelized document library for the whole company. For the safekeeping of documents, i use List Library  for user to keep all of their document for view but i set the item level permission for the edit access as a "only their own".

This work great a few week ago until i made some changes on the DefaultTemplate on the ..\12\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES. And as for now i found out the item level permision fail to work as what it should be. I do revert the changes on the Default template but still any user still can edit other's document..even with "none" as Edit access permision.

Any help in this matter is highly appreaciated.

Thank you


expense claim application - how to set up item level permissions on expense claim document set


Hi All,

I want to create an app that replaces the existing paper-form based expenses reimbursement process with a SharePoint solution.

I have created a content type called an Expense Form Set ( it includes an excel sheet for the user to enter expenses and also includes any digitised receipts associated with the claim )

The claimant can create an expense form set in an Expense claims document library and the Expense Claims Approver is notified, they approve or reject and reimburse if necessary.

however there is a stumbling block.

How do we prevent anyone else other than the person who submitted the claim and the person who needs to approve/reject from seeing the expense claim.

Is turning on content approval the only way to do this.

If so then the act of approving the content will make it visible to anyone else who has view or contribute access to the library.

thanks and regards,


Set permissions to avoid Delete item from List


How can we set permissions or (something) else that will let user to just edit item but CANT delete item?


How to assign Item Level Permissions when a new item is created


Here's my situation: We have a document library which contains employee's performance evaluation documents.  Everyone will have a document, so everybody needs access to this document librairy.  We enabled content types on this library beacause there are different performance templates.  Also we added some metadata (columns) for Employee, Supervisor, Second Level Supervisor.  Once the document is created and saved, a workflow starts which removes everyone's rigths on the document and gives rights to "Employee, Supervisor and Second Level Supervisor".  The workflow works great.

The problem is: The workflow starts with the job called "Workflow" that runs every 5 minutes.  This means the document is available for everyone to see until the workflow actually starts (between 1 and 5 minutes).

Is there another way around this?  Does someone have a solution for my situation?  I need everyone to be able to create a new document in this document library, but once the document is created, it must have only specific rights.  And the process must be as easy (transparent) as possible for the user because it will be used by hundreds of people.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Item level permission for Custom List in sharepoint


Hi all,

  I have created a custom list with work flow associated with that. The workflow takes the item through different levels of approval.

My workflow scenario is like Say an initiator add an item, which will go to manager for approval. When the manager approves, few columns in the current list will get updated. On manager approval it will be forwarded to head of department. Again when the Dept head takes an action, the column values of the list get updated. For all these users i have set Contribute permission. But the problem is that an item started by an initiator should not be editable or deleted by other users using the pull down menu that appears for each item. Only the owner of the item and manager should have permission to edit it using the pull down menu. When i tried changing the edit access for the item through Advance settings-->Item level permission --Edit access being set to "Only their own" while manager or dept head approving i get an access denied error message.

Can any one please suggest me what is the work around for this?

ASP.NET 4.0 Menu Top Level selected item style


I want to apply a css class to the level 1 menu item (parent) when it or any or it's children are selected.

I've looked at MSDN documentation and any number of examples and walkthroughs but I haven't come up with a way of managing this. I was thinking something like this might work but the style is not being applied to the parent. To further complicate matters, if I try to apply a css style to StaticSelectedStyle it doesn't pick it up at all.

Menu Markup:

<StaticSelectedStyle  Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#3333CC" />

Code Behind:

        protected void MenuItemClick_NavMenu(Object sender, MenuEventArgs e)


            MenuItem parentItem = e.Item.Parent;

            if (parentItem != null)


                parentItem.Selected = true;

Attach Workflow to Task List, don't get option to manually start workflow via dropdown on task item



I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.  I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.  I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.  I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).  I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.  When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.  The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.


I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.


I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.  It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.


I have checked my security and I have fu
