i want to be able to have an item field (user picklist) called something like "Assinged to" and on creation of that item ownership is changed to the person specified in the Assinged to Field. i wouldnt mind if this person was added to the additional items either just as long as they are considered an owner of the task.
i want this so that when i assign a task to someone others cant see there tasks (permisions "View Records owned by others), this is mostly because i want to clean up the outstanding work section of the home screen. right now everyone can see the task even if they are not responsible for it.
i dont mind if there is a simple answer to this that doesnt need scripting however i dont think there is.
Solved! Go to Solution.
James - it's not possible to update the owner or add additional owners through scripting currently. One way we deal with this is like you mentioned - remove the 'View Records Owned by Others' permission from the workpace and have the record creator add specific groups or users to the additonal owners:
