    V3 configure admin menus for users?

    Fubals Level 1

      Is there a way to configure the admin menus for a user in V3 in the same way we were able to in V2?

          When you set the permisions for user roles and assign people to those roles you will see menu items hide based on those permisions. It is not 100% just yet but passed/passing on info and scenarios to the engineers to polish the last bits off.

           

          They basically combined things so it makes more sense and easier to manage.

            Hi Liam,

             

            Thanks for your reply, but honestly that's just not good enough from Adobe. That is a feature downgrade as far as I'm concerned. In V2 it was very quick and easy to configure the admin menus to stop users from accessing areas which they would stuff up and also which did not apply to their website. Now we have to laboriously assign permissions, create new roles, waste loads of time and still not have the functionality of V2.

             

            The ability to configure /hide the admin menus was GREAT! it made sites simple for end users and gave partners peace of mind knowing that users cant even see what they don't need to see!

             

            Adobe - Please bring this critical functionality back in V3!!!!!  it gave us real power to configure the system the way we want, and also provided what was best for our clients.

             

            BRING IT BACK!!!

              Menu items only CSS hid stuff, you could still access elements and manage things and through different parts of the system.

              If you only did that and did not set any permissions up for me on an account I could do all you could do on that account quite easily.

               

              The functionality is still there with the permisions and the permisions are the far more important thing to set up. You had to do both which took time and was a bit annoying, now it is combined.
              With the new UI design and the way accounts have changed as well makes the previous method not viable any more.

                So how can you hide the "Site Editor (incontext editing)" from the menu in V3?
