I have a vacation list and each employee can only view and edit his created vacation items.

how can allow the manager to view and edit only requests from his team?

is it possible as OOTB? I don't have good experience in code!!

I can't use SharePoint designer!

  • thank you, in my situation it doesn't help, it allows any one in this group to see all items! I need only the manager to see the vacations requests from his team and others can't see it Sep 14, 2018 at 17:48
  • Can you not populate the people and group field with the user and his manager instead of a group.

    You could create a column that contains the current user and his manager. Then you can create a view with membership element that shows items for current user. Manger would be able to see all his team items as his is added to that column.

Try to do the following:

  • Create a group Managers Group for all managers with edit permission.
  • Assign this group to your list.
  • Edit your list, add a new People Picker column Assigned To Manager.
  • Create a new view to filter by Assigned To Manager = [ME].
  • Now create a new page, add this list view.
  • Edit the list view web part and at the Target audience add the Managers Group.
  • Now everyone in Managers Group can only view/Edit
    • The List view web part.
    • The Assigned requests.

Are you using the item-level permissions setting in your list to only allow employee's to view and edit their own requests? If so, you can provide the manager 'Design' level permissions (or above) to the list which will allow them to view and manage all items. There's a nice write-up of this configuration using almost the same scenario as an example on this blog - https://sharepointmaven.com/how-to-enable-item-level-permissions-in-sharepoint/.
