I want to create a Meeting Organization List which users can assign themselves in a meeting with available dates. But when I create the column with the type "Person or Group" it is open for everybody and users can assign another user by typing their name. I want to prevent that.

I could not find any option to cancel it and I can not use SharePoint Designer so I can not write any type of code.

Can you help me?

Thank you

You could use InfoPath forms to achieve this.

Just query the User Information List to make the data connection and rules to set the people picker field.



you can try either of the following solutions

  1. you can hide the user related column in the new form by adding script editor web


  1. you can also check if the user id entered is same as the logged in user email or not by using presaveaction

function presaveaction() {


{ return true; } else { return false; } }
