Just as a note, I am pretty new to SharePoint. At the moment I am creating a SharePoint(2010) list and I need to assign permissions. The task seems easy, I have to allow a member to see only a file they are assigned and upload their own file (as an answer to it) which I can do by managing item permissions.
The issue is, there is about 500 items/members that would need that kind of permission. My question is, how can I automate this and as stated above let each member see only the file they are assigned and create their own which can be seen only by them as well?
If this is any help, files can be uniquely named (for example with a members surname).
