Force login to a specific group when a user s a member of more than one group

We use Active Directory groups for authentication for the most part. But I'm not sure what to do if a user is a member of multiple groups.


Group1 is persons who have some extra level of access to the various tables and records

Group 2 is persons who can add and modify  some records in some tables

Group 3 is persons who can view records


Let's say that user "waterstc" is a member of all three groups.


I know that the order the groups are listed is the order that FMP uses to match a user/authentication with a privilege set.  But is there a way to force the user's login to a group that sits further down the list, or will that user only be able to authenticate within the group that is highest on the list?
