Hi Everyone!
I am setting up my first portal for a client and was looking for assistance or documentation of how to set up permission so that certain files are only accessible to a club/group of members.

Here is the scenario: I have sales documents and files that need to only be accessible to the "Sales Team" and admin documents that only office workers need to have access to. Is this possible to be set up?

Thank you for your assistance!

It is entirely possible and there are probably a dozen ways to go about it too.

I am guessing the approach you would most prefer to take is to set up 2 different catalogues to hold the different types of documents and then just give the different groups appropriate permissions to each catalogue.

you could also use the downloads system and just apply permissions to the categories and you could even use forums with attachments again with appropriate permissions.

When creating the catalogue it allows you to set which groups has what permissions for that catalogue |(same basically goes for downloads categories and forums)
