    Hi,
    How to set up my list/form so when a user submits his/her own entries, they can only see and edit their own and wont be able to see others.

    The only people able of seeing and editing everything must be an administrator, or super user.

    Thanks, Indrit

    Here is what I did

    Access --> Public
    View records --> Registered
    Edit records --> Special
    or use field --> user
    Add records --> Registered
    Delete records --> Registered
    or use field
    Empty records --> Registered
    Menu Access Only (did not touch this one, because I don't really understand what it does)

    So.., does this type of access set-up will give me what I asked for?

    Thanks, Indrit

    I don't think you want to give delete and empty access to "Registered" so any logged-in user can delete any record and - worse - can empty the complete table.

    With "View list" = "public" anybody (also guests) can see the list.

    You should dig a bit into Joomla's user/usergroup/accesslevel handling.

    If you want to " ...they can only see and edit their own and wont be able to see others..." you need also a list prefilter.

    so I changed everything back to default as listed below:
    Access --> Public
    View records --> Public
    Edit records --> Public
    or use field --> - -
    Add records --> Public
    Delete records --> Public
    or use field ---
    Empty records --> Public
    Menu Access Only (did not touch this one, because I don't really understand what it does)


    Now, as I originally asked, my goal is to have a user to only see and edit their own and wont be able to see others ...

    It looks like I need a list prefilter.

    How, where can I make such changes??

    Thanks, Indrit

    eehm
    with Public access you'll open your data completely to public, including the possibility not only to view and edit but also to delete everything.
