Item Level Permission for sharepoint survey RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a sharepoint survey. I would like to set permissions to view response based on an answer to a specific question in the survey. How do I do this?

    Your help is much appreciated.

    kind regards,

  • There is no support for that out of the box.  You would need to write some code for that.  Are you comfortable writing code?

  • Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your reply. I should be able to write some code. Can this be done by creating a workflow and setting permission or an event receiver?

    I would really appreciate if you could guide me in the right direction.

    many thanks,

  • If you want to ask about writing code please start a new thread in the Programming forum.

    Workflow questions naturally go to the workflow forum.

    Decide on which of the two you want to ask first and post a question accordingly.

    I'll mark Paul's not OOB answer and lock this general thread.
