Hide Workflow Approvals from the Quick Launch for some users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    Title says it all, I'd like to hide "Workflow approvals" for some groups of users, so that they can't access it.

    So far I used SharePoint List permissions to add/remove access to it but I would like to hide the link.

    Is there a way to do that using the PWA groups global authorizations? (like you can do for the approval center or the ressources center)

    Your sincerely,

  • This is definitely not available in the Quick Launch Settings. Since you have already tried the SharePoint List method, here is something more round about way to achive this>

    You could use the "Audiences" feature. In this method

    • Create an AD group of people who will need to see this.
    • Navigate to the Workflow Approvals list settings and do not display it on Quick Launch
    • Now navigate to Site Actions >> Site Settings >> Navigation and create a link to the list
    • In the Audiences section, specify the AD group you created above.

    Hope that helps!
