fourfoot Hi, I asked this before, but not sure if I added to the correct section. I purchased WP Frontend Project Manager and I wanted the ability to have a user add jobs as well as see jobs. So, I’m assigning my users as “editors” and they can add jobs, BUT, they can also see ALL jobs, even if they are not assigned to them. I thought only a user that is assigned to a job can see them? Is there a way to not show them the jobs if they are not assigned to them? Regards. Miles

Hello Miles,

as you are assigning their roles to editor, they will be able to see all the projects. Only subscribers can see the projects they are assigned to.

P:S: Have you tried user role editor plugin?

Hello Mahi,
thank you for the reply. Is there a way to have the subscribers add a job then? Can I tweek the code, maybe you can point me in the right direction. No, I have not tried the user role editor plugin.
Regards. Miles

Hi Miles,

The plugin is made with a concept having a project manager and co-workers/clients and this works pretty fine as a self hosted project management system. But right now what you are asking for, it’s not ideal yet. The user role system is not flexible enough right now to meet your requirement as if you give everyone the editor role, they can see or add any projects. But we are working on it to give a solid permission system. Until then, you’ve to wait for it.

Many thanks for your reply Tareq. I understand. Do you think that using the editor role user plugin will help me achieve this. Sorry for all the questions.

Giving a user delete_pages capability will make him a project editor. So giving the role means you are publicly opening the projects to every user, so I don’t think it’ll be a good idea 🙂

I see. Last question, promise. Can you quote me to make this possible? That is allow a subscriber to add a project, but to keep all other functionality (only see assigned jobs after adding)
Thought it worth asking 🙂
PS. If you want to send me private quote you can email">
