I have a document library whereby in advanced settings I have selected that users can only read, and create & edit items that were created by the user. I had made the assumption (which I now believe is wrong) that this specifically related to the read, contribute and edit permission levels, as I have modified an item's permissions and granted a specific user full control, expecting the user that created the item and this specific user with full control over just this list item to be able to see it, but the user with full control cannot. To clarify further, everyone in the department has contribute access to the list to enable them to add items.
Can somebody please confirm if this is expected behaviour?
The task I'm working on is the storing of timesheets whereby a user can only create/see their own, plus the line manager, stored in a column can also see it (I have a SharePoint 2010 workflow to grant permissions to the line manager).
If this is expected behaviour I will modify the workflow and be more explicit with the removal and granting of permissions, but the simplest approach was to use the library's advanced settings to restrict read/editing access but I thought those with Full Control would not be subject to that setting.
