Permissions Pro: Multiple users + Managing Student records access

I’m designing a website that is a central point for 4 different community groups. Is there a way to ensure that each super-admin can only access student details who have booked courses with that organisation?

I’ve just found out there is a legal issue if say Community Group A can access student records for Community Group Bs courses.

Thanks in advance.

There isn’t a way by default to block Admins (including Super Admins) from seeing all events.

The Event Manager role will allow this, but then they will have limited capabilities (none admin) unless you change their capabilities which unless you know exactly what you are doing can cause other problems (security issues and being locked out of your site).

I would love to have one User Role that can add their own events and modify their own events but can’t change anyone else’s. This role wouldn’t have access to view the attendees.

At the moment either you allow a role to have full access to the Espresso_event_manager which involves access to all student records or you can’t add an event at all. It seems rather strange that their isn’t a user role in between these two.

Does Permissions Pro allow this?

Hi Robin,

Yes and no, the Pro version will enable you to have the Espresso Manager which can create their own events and only see those, but it doesn’t fit with your needs as they also have access to the attendees for those events as events/attendees are tied together.

Event Managers (like any role) can be given access to different areas of the plugin such as Venues etc, if you wish.

Hi Dean, I’ve just bought the permissions pro and it doesn’t seem to be doing what I’m after. I would like the Espresso Event Manager User role to be able to add their own events, be able to view their own attendees but not be able to modify or view the other event attendees added by other Espresso Event Manager. Is there some way around this? Thanks

Hi Robin,

That is exactly what that role does, they are separate from everyone else in that they only have access to their own events.

Can I ask what is actually happening? Are you logged in as an Event Manager?
