Hi - I'm developing a Tracker where I need to restrict access to individual records so that some Groups can see all the records and individual contributors/other Groups can only see their own records. In 2.0/2.1 there is now a category field and I thought this would do what I want, ie by setting this field to a designated category or set of categories it would restrict its access.
But it doesn't seem to be doing what I thought. All the various set up works fine I can set the field to any combination of existing categories within an individual parent by using the various options. But when I login with a variety of userids they can all see all the records irrespective of the value set in the Category field. Also by setting these category field values new categories are created under a new parent Category with the same name as the Tracker. So this functionality is doing something quite clever but clearly too clever for me because I just can't work out what its for?
Can anyone suggest what this field actually does and can be used for, AND more importantly any suggestions on how to solve my main problem of letting individual Tracker records be restricted?
