List View Permissions and Views for Web Parts

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
My fellow developers and I are going in circles a bit with our new Sharepoint 2010.  This question probably has several different answers.   I have a list of grades and comments that our Team Leaders want to create and save on Sharepoint.  When saved, the user who was graded should be able to see their own grades.  Its a pretty simple requirement and I'm 90% of the way there.   I created a list with the required fields, and two separate views.  The first view filters the list by the user's name so they see on their grades.  The second view shows all grades in a grouped order by the person who assigned the grade.  To make this second view more readable, I added some formatting with Sharepoint Designer 2010.  It looks nice.   Here's where the speed bump occurs.  I create a web parts page for each view.  The page showing only the user grades works as expected.  The other page, however, shows the list in a view that I didn't create.  No matter what view I select from the "Edit Web Part" menu, it always shows this strange view.  If I select the list, it says its current view is "Default".  The second view I created is set as default, but its not the view I see.  If I change the current view from list menu to the second view specifically, it shows up correctly. &n

Customized list views and permissions to specific group users

Hi, I have created a custom list with 20 field/columns in wss3.0. I had four user groups(group1, group2,....3.....4) in my site collection with various levels of permissions. I have created four custom views (Group 1 view, Group2 view,...etc)in my list. Each view contains only certain fields out of 20. For example group 1 view contains field 1, 5, 7,10 and 13 of every item in my list.  My requirement is that when a user login, who is a member of group1. he should be able to view only Group1 view fields. He should not able to view other field/columns. I tried creating another field/column called as restricted users and wrote group names in that. In the View edit page I selected " show item when the column 'restricted users' is equl to [Me]. But I did not get it. Kindly help it out any one either programmatically or UI based. Thanks   

Calculated date field displays differently in List View and Data View web parts

In SharePoint GUI I created a simple custom list with a calculated Date/Time field (Due).  The calculation is =[Created]+7.  I'm trying to display this data on a page using a DVWP.  But first, for testing purposes, I also created a second calculated Date/Time (TestCreate) field in my custom list that is simply =[Created]. In the List View from within SharePoint, the dates show as expected (for example): Created = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM Due = 8/19/2010 3:45 PM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM In SharePoint Designer, I added a Data View web part and the above three data elements (each configured to display mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt).  I see the time displayed for the example list item as: Created = 8/12/2010 3:45:30 PM Due = 8/19/2010 10:45:00 AM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 10:45:00 AM I've tested a couple scenarios and the calculated fields always display five hours in the past (along with dropping the seconds).  It seems like the DVWP is returning the date in a different time zone (with no seconds).  The lcid is set right (1033).  I didn't see any time zone settings for the DVWP specifically.  I'm basically stuck.  Could someone help me figure this one out. Thanks.

How to properly configure permissions so users can view, add, edit, and delete list items, but not w

I am trying to figure out how to properly setup security so that it can be configured at the top-level, and then inherited all the way through. Here is what I would like to do: Each user can view, add, edit, and delete list items - but, users cannot modify or delete web part pages. The only way I know how to do this is set Contribute from the top-down, and then go into each Site Pages library and set Read access. The problem is that I have 100 sites, and I was hoping there was a way I could set security at the top, and inherit downward. Rather than having to go into all 100 Site Pages library and set Read access. Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance.

Setting permissions to Items/Views in a list

I have a list containing 2 FY's data. I need to make one of the FY year's data as read-only. Can i create a view filtering only this data and make only this view as read-only or do i need to edit permissions of individual items of the filtered FY and set it as read-only. Is there any other way of doing this?

Unable to view data on list views

I have two lists. A List item in one list will be inserted to the other list based on the actions. This is easily achieved on the event receiver by adding the list item to the target list. Though I adds the list item to the target list; i am only able to view those data when i click on "Modify View" and simply click on "OK" button. Basically its a view refresh / commit. Has anyone came across such issue?

Restricting access to List Views and View pages? Renaming Allitems.aspx?


Ideally, what I want is column level security on a custom list, but that appears to be way more work than it's worth.

Any easy way to restrict access to Views or View pages to select SharePoint groups? Maybe some client level code we have in a Content editor webpart on the View page?

Users in the Group have read access to a particular list.  The Quick launch menu is hidden (I understand that's not real security) .. and the top level tabs are set to particular audiences, and  I understand they can still call the pages if they know the URL.  I've warned the users about this.

I have not tried it, but can I have folders under the list folder and then somehow secure them?

We currently have custom pages for adding and editing list items, but will terrible things come from renaming the Allitems.aspx page or editing it and taking out the View, like for example, say we do have to use newform.aspx for some admin reason and it redirects to it..

Any way to disable users from being able to open the list exel or export it?

Anything else we can do. The goal is to provide some visitor type users read access to some 10 columns in a list, but not let them see the remaining 5.

Thanks for any help or information.

Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.


I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.

This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view

Workflow field not being added to list or views when adding a workflow


This problem just started happening in my entire site collection.  Anytime I associate a workflow to any list or doc lib the Workflow column that shows the status and links to the history is not beind added to the list or any views and is nowhere to be found.   Here's exactly what I'm doing:

1.  Go the List settings -> workflow settings -> add a workflow (for this example the OOB approval workflow)

2.  After adding I go to the List, the workflow column doesn't exist.

3.  I go to "modify view", and the workflow column is not listed in the available columns.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Filter web parts in new form page of a list



I've created 2 custom lists. The 2nd list has a lookup column from the 1st list. In the new form page for this 2nd list, I've added the 1st list as a web part. Now, I want to connect the 2 web parts, but it's not available. Basically, what I wanted is that when I select an item on the lookup column, the webpart containing 1st list would show that item on the same page.

I think I'll need to use Sharepoint Designer to implement something like this, but just wanted to check if anyone has done something like this using browser only.

List view - inline editing with read only fields

I'm new to sharepoint and using SP2010. I would like to use the inline editing feature of list view and at the same time to lock some of the fields. Is there a simpler way to achieve this like adding some field property using SP designer?

stsadm export / import custom view / personal view views

Hi, i have to export and import a website with a sharepoint list including all personal views. The personal views are used by the endusers in excel data connections binded to the list.  Loss of personal views during import is not mentioned in the technet discription of export / import command ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766807(office.12).aspx  ) I am actually testing the export / import between two site collections, but always losing the personal views (MOSS 2007 with CU April 2010). This discussion had the same topic http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/4e299838-72c2-4f56-8dc3-05ba2a2999d9  but with no definite answer. Please tell me if this is by design or what could cause this behavior. Thanks in advance. Boris Boris Schlotthauer
