Public/private R 4.6 and R5 question:
How do I control document access for two types of readers: public and private? Private can view and read all documents; public can only view public documents.
I'm trying to find a way to hide the private views from the public. I have a private/public switch in the document form. I have a private group to identify the private users. I do not want public readers to see any private views. Is this possible?
The only thing I come up with is "hide-whens" in the document itself. That hides the content all right, but I'd prefer to have the public readers not see the private views at all. Thanks.
The quickest solution is reader names. Assign all your "private" users to a group. In a readernames field of the document, add the groupname. This will allow only those users in the group to see and read those documents. You can see how this works in the Discussion database. Be certain to include servers and admins in the private group so they will be able to access the documents, otherwise server processes and replication will not function on those documents.
