#2837 - Unable to add users to Meeting

Closed General Question created by StuartRegan Verified Purchase 11 months ago

Having setup Security Groups and Roles I have a question regarding User Admin and Meetings.
I setup various Groups and 2 Roles - Manager and Assistant.
Both Managers and Assistants can create meetings and whilst they can invite all Contacts from their respective groups, they can only invite Users that they themselves have created.
Similarly, a User can only administer Users they have created and not other Users within their Group.
How do I set up the Roles/Groups to allow the behaviour I require?

    To help, SuiteCRM doesn't make a distinction for security purposes whether someone created a record or not. However, the Assigned To field on a User can be used for that purpose and is generally set to the person who created the User. This then gets used by the Owner setting in the Roles grid.

    For the Users only administering Users, be sure to set their rights for the Users row in the Role Grid to Owner only, as appropriate for each column.

    For Managers/Assistants role grids, set the View and List columns for Contacts to Group and View and List for Users to Owner.

    This should do what you want. However, Meetings act oddly sometimes. Let me know how it goes.

    Apologies for not replying sooner but I had to reinstall SuitecRM due to another issue and it's working fine now.
