I have a custom web part on my home page that is essentially a textbox and a button for submitting suggestions. The suggestions are written to a custom list named "Suggestions". Now, I would like for Users to be able to write but not view others' suggestions. What kind of permission tailoring am i looking at?? Thanks

List Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Item Level permissions.

Change read and edit access to only the ones created by the user.
