I have a folder that is layered deep within the repository. I have several user groups each with their own folder. What I would like to do is only make the child folder visible in the Laserfiche Client, not the parent. Is this possible. So if the documents they need are in "Repository/District/School/Campus/Failed Group 1" , is it possible to only show the Failed Group 1 folder to those users?
This is possible, but there's a catch. If the parent folder is not accessible directly, then you would need to create a desktop shortcut or .lfe file that opens the client directly to that folder.
I am doing something like this for some of our users. If they log into the repository normally, they see nothing, but if they use a desktop shortcut that opens directly to the folder they're good.
Basically, the challenge is that by default the client opens the repository at the root. If the users can't access anything at the root level, they see nothing.
Another option, which may be better in your situation, would be to create a repository shortcut at the root that is only visible to the target group and links to their folder. That way they can log in normally and still have a way to navigate.
What if I only want them to see the containing folders but not any of the other contents.
So in the "repository, incoming doc, registration, failures" folders they would only see the child folder. I tried only allowing read access, but the user could not see any of the children inside.
