Q. Can I give members access to their own private documents using the Secure Document Library?

A. Yes, you can use the Secure Document Library to allow members to view their own private documents.

The Secure Document Library's security system works on a hierarchical level, where users with higher levels get more access to files. If you would like your users to have exclusive file viewing, where each security level has its own files for view, perform the following steps:

  1. Create unique security levels for each individual member from the settings page.
  2. Assign the members unique security level to the private file/document so only clients with this unique security level can view the document.
  3. Open the file "/applications/SecureDocumentLibrary/DocumentLibraryManager/inc_documentlibrarymanager.asp" at line 67

    Change from:
    WHERE Activated = 'True' AND SecurityLevelID >=

    Change to:
    WHERE Activated = 'True' AND SecurityLevelID =
