I have SharePoint list with items (item 1,item 2,Item 3 or 3 rows), I want to maintain the history or list of people for each item who viewed it. Can any one help me how can I maintain the history for viewing the items in the new SharePoint list?
If you are using MOSS (2007) or SP 2010 you can setup an Information Management Policy. This allows you to audit various events, including: "Opening or downloading documents, viewing items in lists, or viewing item properties"
You can set auditing at various levels, including: content types, the web application, etc.
You can also use the the Site Collection Audit Settings within the Site Collection Administration section of site settings to track views as well. You can track the following information:
Documents and Items
Lists, Libraries, and Sites
