I have a SharePoint form (not in InfoPath) that can be created by numerous personnel. In order for us to accept a request, the form must have acceptance from two people--one inside our shop, one outside. I want to create a validation in the column of "OPS Support Decision" that requires "accepted"--a drop down, if the current user belongs to OPS. If the form is being created by someone outside of OPS, then the "Element Support Decision" would require "accepted"--a drop down as well, if the user is outside of OPS. I am willing to write the code, but this certainly is not like excel...and I am lost! Any help is greatly appreciated.
You can do this. There is a function is SPServices that will allow you to check if a user belongs to a certain permissions group. You can check this on DocReady then apply your logic to the form to set the value of the dropdowns, hide/show, or whatever logic you want.
