    Client Section Link to this post


    I am trying to build a section for clients to upload and download sensitive/confidential documents. I have figured out how to create a client zone that all registered clients can access, and I've figured out how to give each client their own profile page where they can add all sorts of contact and personal info (based on ForumRole.php). But I can't for the life of me figure out how to make a simple file manager for them.

    My requirements are:

    - Admin needs to be able to post files to a specific user
    - Member needs to be able to post files to the admin.
    - Everything else like edit and delete would be super but I know it's a lot to ask /s.

    I thought this would be easy but I'm close to giving up.

    You'll need to create a DataObject to store the files and font end Form to to access the Dataobject. Take a look at the DataObjectManger module sinceit already has a methods for controlling File Dataobjects

    Might be worth looking at the secure file module too

    Joshuarr, have you managed to get file sharing up-and-running? If so, what was your approach?
