Hi,

I have a form library, and I have two different views for this library.

I want to be able to show one view to one particular set of users, and the other view to another particular set of users.

Is this possible

Thanks for any help!

I don't think you can convince WSS/MOSS to select a default view based on the user accessing it.

I'd consider adding some links to the quick launch for this purpose.

Go to the form library and select view #1.

Copy/paste the resulting URL.

Go to site -> navigation and add a link for that URL and label it appropriately.

Repeat for the second view.

If quick launch is not sufficient, then create page or add a link web part along those same lines.

Thanks, that is definately something I will look into.

Is there a way to stop being being able to change the view Ie, if creating a link to the specific view works, I don't want them to be able to change the view once at the list.

Thanks again.

No, views cannot be secured.

I think you have two options to do that.


First, use a content query web part.

Second, add the library to another page, convert it to a data view and don't provide any views.

I think the best you can do in that area is to use a content query web part.

I was looking at the view .aspx file in sharepoint designer, seeing if I could easily remove the view changing drop down box from the file. I didn't actually do anything, but the second view that I don't want the users to be able to get to dropped off the list of views that they can see... I don't know why it did, but that is good!

That is another option though, create the view you want hidden in sharepoint designer, it then won't show up in the drop down box for views. I just provided a link to the view on the navigation.
