Granting access to specific forms

    Hi
    My customer runs a site where several departments administrate their own forms. The forms and especially the entries from one department should not be accessible for the other departments.

    I have tried the role management module, which seems insufficient as it only deals with permissions levels across forms - not specific forms.

    Any ideas how to accomplish this. Otherwise it is a request for future development.

    Best regards

  2. Permissions are not that granular in Gravity Forms at this time. We'll keep this as a feature request. Thank you.

  3. Seconded. We have the same situation as the OP.

    Using the Members plugin, if we could add custom capabilities (e.g., gravityforms_view_entries_form1, gravityforms_edit_entries_form2, etc) that would be enough. We could then enable/disable permissions based in the Role Manager included with Members. No need for a fancy GUI for managing roles within Gravity Forms :)

  4. i cobbled something together that uses the Members plugin. add a capability called gravityforms_manage_form_4 to a user and that user can only manage for ID #4. If the user tried to edit or view details or entries of any other form, it does not allow it.
