[Me] filter not working in a custom list for Assigned To RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to create a view for a custom list which only shows the items which are assigned to the current user. So I've created a standard Assigned To field for  the list by using the already existing Assigned to field. I then set up a filter: 
    Field: assigned to 

    It doesn't work however - no items are displayed, even when they are assigned to me. I've also tried using [Current User] which I've read somewhere here on the forum - No luck. Is there some setting I need to enable or am I doing something wrong? I'm using SharePoint Server 2007.

    Further information: when I set the filter to "my-domain\my.sharepoint.user" it works - however I would have to set up a view for each user - not very efficient. 

    Thanks in advance,

  • Okay, I found the problem - it's a german installation so you have to use the german [Ich] instead of [Me]. Thanks anyways!
