Under the Account menu, select organisation and Security tab, then either Groups & Levels, Access Types or User Access Options.
We will cover these one by one.
Groups & Levels
Create groups to allocate users to and then assign access levels. e.g. Create an editors group which you can then be assign to the correct Access Level, which in turn consists of Access Levels defined in the Access Types.
Create additional Access Types and modify existing Access Types.
You can add or remove the following individual access rights from the types defined.
- Read Items
- Read Comments
- Add Comments
- Add Link to.
- Add Link From.
- Add Child to List
- Restricted Editing
- Full Access
User Access Options
This is a powerful option that allows for dynamic forms creation, only showing the logged in user elements of pages that they should or need to be able to access. For example you could have a section for management information, which is only seen by users with the appropriate User Access Options tag.
The way to implement this feature is as follows.
1. Create a 'User Access Options' code. e.g. A1 and give it a name, e.g. 'A class access'. You will then see the condition code e.g. 'FALSE'.
2. Within the 'Users' tab find the user you wish to have this attribute assigned and go to their 'Access Options' tab, and tick the User Access Options tick box to apply the User Access Options to that user.
3. Now when writing your code you can query the value of the flags whilst creating the page to dynamically show or hide sections of a form for example.
