Update list item from within list item RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a list in SharePoint 2007 with a Person or Group type column, named "Attendees" which can contain multiple persons. I want to update Attendees with the logged-in user name on click of a custom link on the form which I have inserted. I was thinking of triggering a workflow which will update the list item, but am not sure how to trigger the update workflow. I am not using nay coding but only SharePoint Designer. Any leads or help would be appreciated.

  • Hi, onclick of the custom form add the list item or update list item and create a workflow for the list when the Item Added or Item Updated event will trigger the workflow and update the same item.

  • Hi

    You can get the Logged in User name without code by doing this  Goto List Settings -> Select Your Column ("Attendees") Change the Type as Single Line of Text and in Default Value give it as [Me].

  • That is what I wanted to know. How can I update a list item by clicking a link on the same form? I have a workflow attached on update of the list item. But am not sure how can I trigger the update item event out-of-the-box?

  • My problem is not getting the logged in user name. My problem is triggering an update event out-of-the-box.
