I apologize if this question appeared yesterday, but when I came back to the forum today to check for answers the system said that I have not posted any questions, and I could not find my question.
I'm new to the DNN community. I've been reviewing DNN along with various other frameworks for the past few weeks. I finally decided to go with DNN7 for my project early last week. I installed DNN7 and have had good luck customizing and modifying the default install so far.
I realized that DNN doesn't appear to have a way to "group" users into clients. I want to be able to assign users to clients and restrict access so that users associated with a particular client only get access to specific functionality, and more importantly restrict the underlying DATA access based on the client to which user belongs. For example, if I've got an email marketing page with lists of users, I only want users for client A to be able to see their contacts. Users for client B should only be able to see their contacts, etc.
Am I missing this feature, or am I missing something very obvious in this regard? Do I need to write my own code/module to implement this functionality? I'm surprised that DNN doesn't seem to include this functionality out of the box, and I'm equally surprised that I haven't yet found a module that addresses this need.
Can anyone provide me with an answer or point me in the right direction if this has been done as part of the DNN code base or as an add on module?
I appreciate any assistance that can be provided on this issue.
