    Ok still using a workflow same issue as list...

    I need to make it so headmaster can only EDIT the status field. but the staff can see whether their request is accepted or declined



    Any ideas where i can get an open source module/addon to do this? alot are costly.

    Okay update.

    Sort of solved it without security.

    What i have done is actually hidden the field through the workflow.

    Although it can be edited in spreadsheet, hopefully the staff won't figure that out.

    I'll create a link for the boss and all should be well!

    Why make it so complicated - why not just get the member of staff to email an absence request to the head - if approves it he forwards it to the relevant admin person who enters it into cover

    The boss is the boss.

    Even though it is the Head asking for this then they still need to be given advice and, maybe, even a warning that you may be going down the wrong route. I am sure that the pros and cons would be listened to. Especially if you have a logical argument to follow a different direction!

    Lol Thanks for the input, We have explored those oppertunities.

    I have completed the task now anyway. Just hidden the field and made him a personal page where he can administrate the absence system with links. I am going to make the main page for staff where they can press a link to request leave of absence and also see their own requests on the page

    It should be fine for now.

    Thank you everyone for your suggestions! It has been helpful
