Limit Access To Back-End Data by Role

  1. Is there a way to allow registered users to access ONLY the "WP-admin --> Forms --> Entries" so that they can add Notes to an entry?

    We're a group of churches that wants to track what kinds of food/monetary assistance we give to individuals. What we're finding is that people will hit one church up for assistance then drive down the street and hit another church up for assistance, etc, etc. When a church gives assistance to someone who's in the database we want to be able to use the "Notes" area as a way to keep track of assistance provided. We want all churches to be able to view records and make entries to Notes, but we only want the site administrator to have access to all the other parts of the WP-Admin (posts, pages, plugins, menus, etc.).

    Does this make sense? Can it be done?

  2. You can use a plugin like the Members plugin by Justin Tadlock to create a role for your churches and give that role permission only for Gravity Forms related tasks.

    After you install that plugin, you can create a new role (Church Volunteer, Volunteer?) and then grant specific permission to just the gravityforms capabilities. Here is a screenshot of the permissions screen in my installation now, showing just the Gravity Forms capabilities: http://minus.com/lbfzyk2WHyLNPY
