People assigned to events: How do I allow them to view their events only?

Hi

I am looking into how I can get staff members to view only the courses that they teach.

I was wondering if this is possible through the App?

I only want them to be able to see the events they are assigned to.

Thanks for your help!

Hi there,

It possible to do this by setting the staff member as the event author and creating a role on the site that only has access to ‘their’ events but that can only work for the event author.

So how are you ‘assigning staff’ to the events currently?

Thanks for replying Tony,

I haven’t been assigning staff to events yet, at the moment I produce a register which I give to people manually. I’d like to be able to automate it though so that staff can view their own registers online – but if I give them access to the whole system it’ll be too much for them and they will never find what they need!

I have been looking at the “People Admin” plugin, which you can use to assign staff to events, but I’m not sure that this actually does what I need it to.

So it sounds like using the Event Author function is what I need to do. Would I set their User Role as Events Administrator when setting them up as a new user?

Many thanks.

You could give them the Events Administrator role, and unmodified that role will give them access to all events. You can use a plugin like User Role Editor or Members to edit the role so those user accounts only have access to their events. More information here: https://eventespresso.com/wiki/event-espresso-4-roles-permissions/

Summary: You’ll remove any of the ee_read_others_* and ee_edit_others_* capabilities from the custom user role.

This is really helpful, I’ll try this.

Many thanks to you both.
