Hi all,

In a custom list library, Is it possible to restrict users viewing the items that are not owned by them or assigned to them


I have a group of people including A,B,C,D,E. They are all contributors.

User A creates a Confidential item and starts Approval WF on it, assigning to D and E for approval. Only A, D and E should see and edit that item and its contents.

Actually in Settings\Advanced Settings\Item-Level Permissions we can select ¡°Only their own¡± option at Read Access and Edit Access sections. However doing so also restricts them viewing the items assigned to them (e.g. approval workflow).

Any suggestions
