Our client is a builder and they need a way for their contractors to login and upload/download documents about each build (plans, building consents, information etc). They (the builder) also need a way to share build information with their clients whose homes they're building (plans, progress, photos etc.).
- contractors would be able to log in and we'd present them with a front-end page listing their projects, view the projects' files and maybe allow them to upload files? We want to be able to restrict the contractors only to builds that they're working on. If absolutely necessary it might be ok if the contractors needed to upload files through the CP rather than the front-end.
- clients would be able to log in to a front-end page and see their build(s) and any files that the contractors/builder had uploaded and made visible to them. they shouldn't be able to view other clients' builds' information.
Is it possible to do this with vanilla Craft, or would we have to write a plugin to enable us to do this?
How easy is it to associate a user/users/groups with entries/asset sources?
