Workflow Activity: creator-only access to list items

  Asked By: Nakul    Date: Sep 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1596

Can anyone recommend an off-the-shelf Custom Activity for adding or removing
permissions on a list item? I've been asked to set up a list where once an
item is created, only the creator (and a select management team) can see
it. This particular client shies away from custom development, so obviously
I'm hoping someone has already created a solution for this part.

I've seen http://spdactivities.codeplex.com/ before but it's still very
Alpha and the client prefers a bit more assurance. Has anyone shopped
available options?

Obviously if there isn't a commercial product then they'll have no choice,
but I generally try to respect my clients' wishes in cases like this.

Thanks for the tip about the codeplex package. That'll be a good start
since it looks like custom  dev is our only option right now.
