Presently I have configured multiple filtered views of the same list for different users. When the user opens and edits a list item then Saves that list item SharePoint takes them back to the default list view instead of their custom filtered view. I am attempting to get SharePoint to take the user back to the view from which they started, a the custom filtered view that only shows items related to their interests. Does anyone have any idea how to do this? Help as always would be greatly appreciated.

On Edit Item Click open the EditForm as follows


After save it will redirect back to http://site/list/listname/viewname.aspx


Update Default Edit Form aspx file and add logic to redirect user back to previous page

  • First off thank you for answering. Now while that sounds simple enough I am not entirely certain how to access the URL associated with the edit item click so that I can append the URL with the "?source=" part. how do I get to that?
