    Hi there, my board members are setup as WordPress “subscribers” in addition to board members.

    Is it possible to set it up so that they cannot edit the Board Management backend, only RSVP to events?

    Currently, it seems like every board member can add events, edit committees, etc, which doesn’t seem ideal. Any way to turn that feature off? We just want them to be able to read/download everything and RSVP to meetings.

    Thanks for reaching out @withacause. Unfortunately, the plugin is set up so that all board members have equal rights and permissions to make adjustments to the system. The only way to allow board members to RSVP to events, but not allow them to make changes would be to use the Automatic Event RSVP and Reminder Emails extension. Once you set the extension up then you could adjust each board member’s password so they don’t know it. Then they would only be able to RSVP via the reminder email. One downside to this approach is that each board member could use the feature to retrieve a forgotten password so they could log in again.

    The other issue with that approach is that you would then be forced to use a password protected page in WordPress to share private content or files with the board. This would be one password shared by all of the board members and would be disconnected from the board management plugin entirely.

    While these solutions aren’t ideal, they hopefully could get you closer to the setup you’re looking for. Let me know what else we can do to help.
