I’vve license for Event Espresso 4 and want to customize access to users such as event managers. However, the User Role editor for Event Espresso is supported and available only for version 3. Could you please share how could I provide this functionality in Event Espresso 4? Also, feel free to recommend 3rd party plugins if required.

If you wanted to grant the user access to editing events that they have not created, then the above capability would be needed as well.
