How to create annonymous suggestion list or discussion

  Asked By: Denny    Date: Aug 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 18990

Any ideas on creating an annonymous suggestion box list or discussion
board for employees to enter suggestions? I don't want readers to be
able to see who posted suggestion in the list view or when they open
an item. I tried creating a custom list, but I still get the created
by and modified entries at the bottom of each item.

You can either copy the default list  definition for the discussion  board
and then edit the files to not show that information, or you can do it
through FrontPage

You can use the default discussion  list. Just create  a custom view  with those fields turned off, and make it the default public view.

The problem that will pose is the detailed view  of the thread will still display created and last modified  by.

How does the general user switch to detailed view  on the Discussion List? I don't even see that option on my test setup, and I have admin rights. I guess I need to create  a test user with minimal rights to see the different effects.

Have you thought about creating  asurvey that only has a comment field?

I should have been more clear. When you are viewing threads in a board you have the option to select the subject and view  it on its own like you would a single list  item. That detailed screen will show the author info.

Can't you add a content editor webpart to the list  item's edit item
page that contains javascript that would render the username as
hidden or garbage?

Survey has the option to keep things anonymous … I’d see about turning this into a Survey.

The Content Editor webpart works at the client side, which means that the real data that he is trying to keep hidden has been transmitted to the client in the clear. It doesn't take a lot of effort to retrieve that information while its intransit (a simple local proxy will do the trick). The data might also show up in temporary internet files. In short, using the Content Editor Webpart for securing data isn't a great idea.
