An added feature that would really improve our user experience on our site would be to set visibility to public/private on each individual file within a category, instead of only on the category itself.

Consider the following scenario:

We have an online course, but users can purchase different packages (bronze, silver and gold package). The bronze package only provides you with the basic template files, while the gold package grants the user access to all available files. Instead of adding multiple categories of files to the same lesson, we would like to be able to list all files connected to that lesson in one category, but then set the gold level files to only be accessible by gold user roles.

Currently the user's page looks like this, because they have a gold membership status and can see all the category shortcodes added to the lesson. Ideally we'd like all the files in one table only.

Hi,

Thanks for adding your feature request here.

Currently, this feature is not possible for files in our plugin, we will take a look at that in the future version.
In your situation, you can create a parent category and 3 sub-categories corresponding to the packages.


Hope it helps!
Cheers,

Thank you for your response. I tried the subcategories, but unfortunately then it displays a folder that needs to be clicked on to expand. We would like the files to list straight away, without the user having to click to open a folder first.

I honestly hope you can incorporate this in the future version. :)

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me with more information.

. I tried the subcategories, but unfortunately then it displays a folder that needs to be clicked on to expand. We would like the files to list straight away, without the user having to click to open a folder first.

Our dev can help you to expand sub-categories without clicking.
Anyways, this was noted in our planning area.

Thanks a lot!
Cheers,
