      IWP access to certain records for certain users

      Post

      Hello,

      I am using (and loving) FileMaker's IWP capabilities. I would like to invite certain people to sign on and have access to only certain records. Is this possible to set up in Accounts and Privileges? How about only having certain fields visible, within those records?

      Thank you so much,

      Katrina

          Down to the record, not field, level, you can use access privileges to set this up. See "Editing record access privileges" in FileMaker help and pay careful attention to the sub section titled "Entering a formula for limiting access on a record-by-record basis."

          The most straight forward way to limit access to specific fields would be to create at least two layouts--one where the restricted fields are visible and one where they are not. Then you can use a script that checks the privilege set name to select the appropriate layout.
