Change default ID Field in form URL to different field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm struggling with finding a solution to the following exercise: 

    I'm having a SP list with workflows that send URL link to the edit forms. Currently, the users receive standard URL which is http://myorgsite.net/sp/lists/list_name/form_1.aspx?ID=123, where 123 is the value of ID field. Basically, users can access the form of any other item from the list by changing the value at the end of the URL.

    I thought of two approaches to this challange

    1. encrypt/hash the URL link so the users will not get possibility to edit anything; or
    2. change the part of the URL link so the other field would be used. e.g http://myorgsite.net/sp/lists/list_name/form_1.aspx?REF=2h34y324n where "2h34y324n" is the value of calculated field

    I would appreciate an assistance in resolving this challange

    Please excuse me if I posted this thread in the wrong category

    thank you in advance
