First I need to know if I set up the forum correctly. I'm still confused on categories vs forums vs subforums.

In the event that is set up correctly, how may I go about making the different forums private, only accessible to the members of the teams/particular forum. see screenshot. thanks

To see the difference beteween Categories, Forums and subForums please read this doc:

Accesses and Permissions for different users:

If you have two forums (cat, forum or subforum), say Forum 1 and Forum 2 and two users User 1 and User 2. You can do this confguration to make a user specific access forums:

1. Create a Company 1 Usergroup and attach User 1 to this group (Dashboard > Forums > Usergroup)

2. Create a Company 2 Usergroup and attach User 2 to this group (Dashboard > Forums > Usergroup)

 

3. Edit Forum 1 and set permissions:

  • Admin - Full Access
  • Moderator - Moderator
  • Customer - No Access
  • Registered No Access
  • Guests - No access
  • Company 1 - Standard Access
  • Company 2 - No Access

 

4. Edit Forum 2 and set permissions:

  • Admin - Full Access
  • Moderator - Moderator
  • Customer - No Access
  • Registered No Access
  • Guests - No access
  • Company 1 - No Access
  • Company 2 - Standard Access
