User Group Access Permissions is an advanced feature of CM Download Manager Pro since version 1.6.1. Collate users into groups that you can manage and moderate. Here you decide which groups of users have full access to your downloads, who can upload without moderation, and which user groups need further review and moderation before being granted permission to download or upload files on to your WordPress website, making the managing user permissions easier.

The user groups definition settings are accessed using the group management interface in the plugin dashboard. This is where administrators can create multiple groups of users while defining the membership of each group from the list of users from the existing WP users table.

Once these user groups are defined, administrators can then set the permissions for each of these groups, deciding which group of individuals can add upload their own files for download and also which groups can view existing downloads.

the cm download manager uses wordpress user tables to create groups of users that have permission to access files that you control and moderate.

Administrators can also grant users the option to define per each download which groups are allowed to view this download
