I would really appreciate any insight into the following 3 questions. 1. I've never been able to restrict much, and I tried to do some diagnosis today. I decided to restrict users' views using Departments. I created a test user with these permissions. Username: test1\nDepartment: Planning (also tried having no Department)\nRole: Project worker\nPermissions:\nApp: Tasks ->Access View Add Edit Delete -> allow App: Task Logs -> Access View Add Edit -> allow App: Projects -> Access -> allow( I found that this is necessary, otherwise the users sees no projects and no tasks). Role: Project worker\nPermissions:\nApp: Files -> Access View -> allow App: Task Logs -> Access View Add Edit -> allow App: Tasks -> Access View Add Edit -> allow Non-Admin Modules -> View -> allow Now I have a certain project, say Project1. It's Department is \"Research\". However, this users test1 is able to view it, even though the user is in a different department (or no Department)> In fact, this user, and other users, are able to view everything in this and all other projects. 2. Also, it doesn't appear that users can belong to multiple departments, correct? 3. Also, if I remove permissions to App: Projects (for example), and sign the user out and back in, they don't see the menu lin k Projects. However, using the URL directly, they can get in anyway.
