Views based on user's state

  Asked By: Alyssa    Date: Oct 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2364

I'm building a SharePoint site with a list of events across the
country. There will be several users from each state who access the
site and enter their events. I would like to create a view of the list
where users can see only the events from their own state. The [Me] or
[Today] filters aren't of much use here, of course - seems like custom
code would be required. I'd like to avoid creating separate views for
all 50 states - ideally users wouldn't be able to see events from other
states. Unless there's a way to target views to specific users... I
just don't want them to see the full list of views. Can anyone point me
in the right direction as to how I could go about doing this? Is it
even possible?

Is it a WSS site  or a SPS portal site?

It's WSS... Are you thinking audiences? Yeah, I could have made that
work had it been a portal!

I don't know if this is the right approach, I think you will have to get the current user location information (US States) from AD and then match the name with a column name choice field say 'State:" in your event list. if the two values matches, then display that event item.

I think it's doable, maybe a custom web part.
