Permissions for Task List

  Asked By: Larissa    Date: Jan 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4318

How do I restrict a user to only view tasks that have been assigned to
them? In other words the "All Tasks" view will only show the same items
that are in the "My Tasks" view.

You can set the ability for a person to view  their own tasks  by
modifying the affect views as follow:

In the Filter section, select the radio button for "Show items only when
the following is true:" and underneath "Show the items when column",
select "Assigned To", "is equal to" and enter "[Me]" (brackets

You'll need to do this for every public view that you only want people
to see their own tasks. You might want to consider setting up a private
view for all tasks that does not filter on [Me]. This will aid in any
troubleshooting you might need to do in the future.

That seems to work, except that I need some users (managers) to be able
to see all items in the list. Should I add the ability to have
multiple "assigned to" values, and then assign the task, and through
workflows add the manager group as an additional value?

I'm not sure I would go that route. You might want to create a new
permission level that has "Manage Personal Views" permission rights (as
well as all of the other permission rights they need) and assign that
group of managers that new permission level. From there, these managers
can create their own personal views.
