Zones – Restrict Access & Set Up Additional Editors

Posted by & filed under , .

Did you know that you can set up your Zones to be viewable to select users in your department? You can also add users, that are not admins, to have edit ability to edit a specific Zone. In this post, we will discuss how to set up these two features.

Restrict Access to Zones

Restricting access to Zones is great for managing content for certain areas of your department such as an officer’s only document area. To get started, select the Zones link in the admin area. Select the Users link next to the Zone you want to limit access to. Under Viewing Users select the Select Users link.

Now, simply select the users that you want to allow to view this Zone and select Save.

The Users you selected are now displayed in the Viewing Users section and this Zone is now protected for viewing just by these users. You can repeat these steps for any other Zone you want to restrict users to.

Add Edit Ability to Zones

Allowing other users to edit Zones is great for allowing users to keep content up to date in the Zone without them having the full access of admin. Adding additional edit users to a Zone works very similar to the above steps. Select Users next to the Zone you want and select the Select Users link next to Zone Editors. Select the users you want to have edit ability and Save. Now you have additional users who can edit this Zone.

Any user that has edit ability will be able to edit the Zone by selecting the Zone in the Zones section on the left menu and then selecting the Edit link on the top right of the displayed Zone.
