Field Privacy Setting - Have I missed a setting?

12 years 1 week ago - 12 years 1 week ago #158035 by AlexRag
As far as I can tell my understanding of CBPrivacy is that it permits you to set privacy settings for your users so they can choose to hide or make visible everything in a tab as well field items within a tab.

I figured out what I needed to do to make the tab privacy parameter active, but can't seem to figure out what I'm not doing properly to get the individual field within that tab to be hidden (assuming of course the user makes the tab visible, but only wants certain field to be seen). If the tab is made hidden, it wouldn't matter what the item setting was.

1. I activated (Published) the CB Privacy plugin

2. Activated the Privacy_setting in the Field Manager (Figure 1)

3. Changed the parameter within the chosen field cb_phone (Figure 2)

I was expecting to see the drop down next to the field, but not sure why I don't see it. (Figure 3)

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or not understanding about this plugin?

Anyone have any ideas if the privacy settings is possible on a per line as well as per tab basis?

Hi Alex,

I faced the same problem and with lot of hair raising efforts i found out this solution :
1. Enable the Connections option in the CB setting.
2. Add the different type of connections
3. Go to the tab for which you need to have the privacy settings.
4. As you have posted the screenshot, make the privacy configuration control to "User can set it" from the "Default CB settings".
5. Voila!! then it works like a charm :)

Reviewing your screenshots you appear to have taken the appropriate steps. Please check that no caching is enabled or something of the sort that'd result in inaccurate data. If issue persists please PM backend login credentials so may take a look.
