Here is my scenario:
Currently have a log in bar but I want visitors to complete an application questionnaire before they are approved and can join the website. Unfortunately people see the log in bar and immediately try to join via that route.
I have set the site so I manually have to approve members and only approve them after the application is done but want to automate to help in scaling. (if they correctly filled out the application first I send them an email to invite them to join the site.)
My intention is to use these forms to then qualify specific leads, provide relevant content which leads them to join the forum and then ultimately set up consulting meetings after consuming free content over time.
FORUMS: Is there a way to then give the Avocado people access to specific sections of the forum and the Pasta people access to their own dedicated section of the forum? [I've tried to use member permissions but it seems that access on the forum is all or nothing.]
Follow Up to your response: See below section of how I was using permissions. I want all 3 of the member roles to have access to the forum but different categories based on their role. I.e. Avocado lovers only access avocado category. Pasta lovers only access the pasta category. Tofu lovers only access the tofu section. There will be a general section where everyone can access.
The current set up seems like its all or nothing and you cant give a role partial forum access.
