Members in Multiple Groups

Post by MsMetaP » 2013-05-31 14:03

I would like to be able to assign members to more than one group. I have several people who have overlapping functions and trying to set up all these groups for them is crazy hard. Defining the groups is easy, but some people need to belong to more than one. Any possibility?

I do know about the "set special permissions" but this is tedious when you have to do it for many people. Thanks!

Sorry not yet unfortunately ... I'll start planning the features of the next release within a week or so by scanning through the suggestions in the forum and seeing which ones are most asked for .. I think this one is among the most-requested so it could be implemented in the next release.

In my humble opinion, multi group membership [access control] would be a huge step forward towards leveraging the power of AppGini (out of the box) in a corporate/enterprise environment. As would enabling integration with wordpress (or other CMS).

I'd be happy to pay an additional premium for a 'pro' version for the above enhancements :D

Thanks for the feedback, Geeman. I'm indeed considering an enterprise version with several advanced features including, besides multiple group memberships, activity logs, support for master/slave databases, and other advanced features. No date has been set yet, but hopefully before the end of this year.

Well, if it encourages Ahmed to push on with AppGini development I, too, would be prepared to pay for a Pro version. My top wants are (1) field level security; (2) multiple group memberships and (3) to see published a short book on commonly used script commands for Hooks so that in-betweens like me can do more with the programme.

+1 for a Pro version. I'd be more than happy to pay for continued development of AppGini.

Not trying to be negative here as I full well know how challenging it is to be a one-man-do-it-all outfit. I appreciate all that Ahmad has enabled us to do with AppGini and at such a modest cost. But, the sooner the better for all these most requested features.

I wish Ahmad would partner with others and expedite the delivery of new versions.

Hello,

I am currently using appgini, this is the wonderful application to work with, if you can add multigroup membership, field level security and integration with any cms would be greatly helpful for the users of appgini to develop enterprise application. We would be more than happy to pay for this features.

Thanks a lot.

Thank you all for this awesome feedback ... I'll sure work on adding these features, maybe to an "enterprise edition", or some other flashy name ;)

That's great, Ahmed. But please don't feel that we are just leaning on you for these features. I get the impression that people here really want the product (and you) to be even more successful. So work with the community. I'm sure there are those who can assist directly and indirectly. Tell us what you need.

Yep ... I'm sure of that as well ... Actually, I'm currently working on an add-ons framework for AppGini applications to make it easy to add additional functionality to applications without having to modify their code -- It's much more flexible than the current hooks implementation. Once I finish the framework, I'll publish its technical documentation for anyone who's interested in developing add-ons ... Maybe this could start some small market place for add-ons.

+1 for Pro version. I will help beta test if you want feedback.
With 15 years as an open-source software engineer, Ahmed your AppGini program is the best. I purchased my copy in February 24, 2013. It was a solid PHP code generator and database setup program from the beginning. But, you gave us an easy way to build attractive websites and web apps for a smart phone when you introduced bootstrap templates. Rock Star move!

I also could use a group assigned to a user that has access to a list of groups.

Once again, thank you for your wisdom in creating this awesome application and clean php code generation software.

Well ... seems this thread is getting revived with fresh interest :) We're currently working hard to release AppGini 5.70 ... Once we do so, we'll start planning some enterprise add-on features including the above requested ones as well as SSO/LDAP integration. Stay tuned!

Hi Ahmad,

I've been keeping abreast of this feature myself and have an application launch that would benefit from this. The multiple group or LDAP (better) thing would be a game changer for me. Being semi retired, I create lots of small applications for small - medium businesses but if you enabled LDAP out of the box, my corporate contacts would fall in line quickly.

Fingers are crossed. :D :D :D
