The upload feature via shortcode is great.

Now - I am looking for a way how I can allow certain users to upload files but not others.
Regular users should simply be able to download files on the frontend while editors can upload.
We have many different folders and it would be nice to simply add a shortcode for editors to manage files.

Alternatively I could create a new document with user restrictions and add an upload shortcode.
It has been mentioned that it is a bit cumbersome since the user can't pick a specific upload folder.

Anyway - just a suggestion. Otherwise - great plug in!

Hi,

Thanks for adding your feature request here.

Yes, this is a powerful feature to restrict the uploading option following user's role using shortcode.
As you are the first person request, it needs to be discussed about technical issue and user's demand for a future version.

Thanks a lot!
Cheers,
