tiered read access

  Asked By: Jeana    Date: Nov 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 867

We have a business need to have multiple levels of access on a list.

1. user reads their own items.
2. user reads all items. (cannot have manage list permissions)
I have explored the idea of filtered views and personal views.
Unfortunately this is not real security and I can't expect our "read
all" users to create their own view. If I could create personal views
for them through code this might work, but I can't find a way to create
personal views for a specific user.

Another option I found is to use content approval and make the "read
all" users approvers. The biggest problem with this (aside from the two
extra views I would have to delete) is the big warning on the newform
and editform. If I could remove the warning we would be set.

The last option I can think of is setting custom permissions on every
item. I really don't want to do this but it may be my only option.

any thought or suggestions are appreciated.

The following link provides code  for an event handler that changes
permissions for a list  item. You might be able to modify this code to do
what you want.
