HI

I need to create a 3 level hierarchy of rights for viewing/editing jEvent

Head office
- Office 1
-- User 1
-- User 2
-- User 3
- Office 2
-- User 4
-- User 5
-- User 6
- Office 3
-- User 7
-- User 8
-- User 9

Events published by Head office (read write)
All offices and all User should see it (read only)

Events published by Office 1 (read write)
Visible to User 1, User 2, User 3 (read only)
Visible to Head office

Events published by Office 2 (read write)
Visible to User 4, User 5, User 6 (read only)
Visible to Head office
And so on…

Event published by User 1
Visible to User 1 (read write)
Visible to Office 1
Visible to Head office
Hidden to other users
And so on…



What would be your advice regarding these needs? What strategy should I use to achieve my goal.
NB: I have been coding in Joomla for few months now but I have never worked with ACL. Any information would be much appreciated.

1 - create Joomla ACL groups for office 1, 2, and 3 users
2 - create separate new Joomla ACL access levels for reading events for the different offices
3 - create separate calendars or categories for the events created by Office 1, Office 2 and Office 3 and assign the appropriate viewing access levels
4. Use the authorised user mode in JEvents to assign users who can create events for Office 1, 2, & 3 categories/calendars
5. Set up a head office group and access level that can view everything

Hope that makes some sense.

I think there are general tutorials on Joomla ACL available if you search at joomla.org
JEvents Club members can get priority forum support at the Support Forum. As well as access to a variety of custom JEvents addons and benefits. Join the JEvents club today!
