Allow users to add item to the list but not view RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a custom SharePoint list called "Feedback" and I customized this list form in infopath and I published to this list. Also I have added a link in the homepage say "Submit Your Feedback". All the users submit their feedback by clicking on this link. All the feedbacks are saved into Feedback list. We need to allow all the users to submit their feedback through "Submit Your Feedback" link.

    Now, we want to restrict all the users to submit the feedback but not view all the feedbacks in the "Feedback" list. Also we need to allow 4 users to see all the feedbacks in the list.

    We are not supposed to use Visual studio. Is there any way that I can handle this.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

  • You can go into List Settings > Advanced and there is an option where users can only read or edit items that they have created. Then you can give the 4 super users Full Control on the list, and they should be able to see all items.

  • John, Thanks for your quick reply.

    I have given all the authenticated users to "Contribute" access and those 4 super users to"Full Control" access. If I go and set Read items that were created by the user and Create items and edit items that were created by the user in the Advanced settings, now all the authenticated users can only see their items in the list , right?

  • That is how it's supposed to work! It's always a good plan to test though :)

  • John, My only doubt is if I set "Read items that were created by the user" and "Create items and edit items that were created by the user" in the Advanced settings sections, are these 4 super users can see all the items in the list even they have Full control access?
