Access & Permissions.

Finally, we want to make sure our site is setup with proper permissions, access and custom roles, so that our users have the correct permissions to access CRED forms, submission and to view our content, and lock down other permissions within our site.

Important Note: In this video we show you where the access settings and permissions are managed. We show two ways where you can manage permissions, directly through the custom post type, as well as through the Cred forms. You don’t necessarily need to setup both, it depends on how you want users to access and interact with content. This video is a reference, and should be combined with reading the documentation provided in the buttons below the video.

If you have any questions about this, please post in the LattePress slack, or in the Toolset support forums to ensure your permissions and access are setup correctly.
