How do I disable certain controls for certain users?

Jump to solution

I've created an intake form that allows users to submit requests to my team and to monitor the progress of those requests.

The problem is that there are supposed to be certain fields that are only editable by my team and not the team submitting requests.

Is there an easy way to disable these controls using validation rules?

Or even formatting rules? 

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Armand,

Have a search around this forum for the fn-IsMemberOfGroup function - there are plenty of posts showing how you can hide things based on whether someone is a member of a group or not.

Alternatively you could display controls based on a person's role/group that is managed in a SharePoint list.  This post shows you how to do that.

Cheers,

Chris

Thank you for the help Chris! 

The post i referred to that helped me is here

Basically i just created a SharePoint group and set the expression as (fn-IsMemberOfGroup("My Group"))

Works like a charm.
