Is it possible to give a specifik role the On Page Editing view at log in? (EPi 11)


We have a couple of different user roles for our webbeditors in Epi 11:

  • publisher
  • editor
  • author

The "lowest" is publisher. A publisher is a employee that spends very little time in the CMS (less than 5% of the working time) and we have limited the access to several funktions in Epi for them. But we see that they struggle with all the options and buttons and fields and tabs in EPI (that they dont need in most cases).

Im thinking, another step to help those people could be to have them enter their pages directly in the On Page Editing view.

Would that be possible? But the other two roles should still be entering the All properties view when they entering epi.

If you are using Episerver v10.11.0 or above and don't have any custom code overriding it, then the feature 'Sticky View' means that the last view selected by the user for a page type will always be used. If no view has been saved yet, the default should be the On Page Editing view anyway.

If that isn't sufficient, this article gives some information on how to override the sticky mode and set a default view, which you could modify to check a user's role. Also, this blog post shows how to modify the default view for a user with/without admin access
