Apply Extended Privileges at User Level

Is there a way to apply Extended Privileges to a specific user, as opposed to an entire Privilege Set? I thought this would be an obvious thing to allow...


Say for example I have 4 Priv Sets: Worker, Foreman, Project Manager, Office Admin


Each has several users.


But some functions need to be performed by specific users who are not all in the same Priv Set, for example a single 'Worker', and only two of the 'Project Managers' need to be the only ones who can approve PO's, but no-one else. Surely creating an Extended Privilege and applying it to these specific users would be the way to go? How else would one achieve this without having to create a specific Privilege Set for these 3 people?


I really don't want to go down the route of hardcoding account names into scripts.


The only other way I can think to do this is to store some sort of boolean logic against a table of 'Users' which correlate to Filemaker Accounts, but that seems to be wandering outside of the in-house security tools provided by Filemaker.


Am I missing something here?
