I have a list in my SharePoint site that has a column - "Assigned to". this field is of type "Person or Group". I want to create a view for this list which shows those items which:

  1. are assigned to me OR
  2. are assigned to a SharePoint group I belong to.

Part 1 is fairly straightforward and I have been able to create a filter for the view such that "Assigned to" = [Me].

I am finding it a bit of a challenge to implement part 2 without the sharepoint designer feature. Is there any workaround for this?

If not, what is the way to proceed?

  • Last time I tried, even if Assigned To was a group, you could use Assigned To is equal to [Me] and it would filter properly regardless if it was a group or an individual user. But that was about 8 years ago so I might be mistaken. – Eric Alexander May 25 '16 at 12:34

To make this work you need to edit the CAML query and make use to Membership property.

As per my understanding you can only do this via SPD.
