I’m putting together a site for a client, and as they are going to be adding and removing job postings on a very regular basis, I guided them towards CMS and hosting with Webflow. The setup and such are perfect, super-cool and so forth.
The thing is, I notice of course that the collaborators can then access every single text block and image across the entire site, and edit it.
If I wish to restrict their access to certain elements, I know I can go to Editor Settings and disable “Allow Collaborators to edit this element”, but I wanted to ask — is this a cascading control? For instance, if I have a main container or div with multiple elements inside and I want to disable all access, or even restrict to one text box within (for example), can I turn the collaborator edit option off on the top-level container element and it disables all the items within (and then turn one back on within)?
It doesn’t seem so, because their check boxes are still active when I view them… so does this mean I need to flick back and forth between the Navigator and Element Settings panels to select and manually activate/deactivate collaborator access PER ELEMENT?
I’m hoping someone can put my mind at ease here
