Dear OF Team,

I would like to be able to run Collect on a server. Field crews would send collected data from their Android devices to the server but also edit the data stored on the server. However I would like to be able to define a role for the teams where they can edit only their own records.

Is there a role that suits these requirements? If not, could you add one in the future?

Dear András,
In Collect there is already a "Entry Limited" user role; users having that role can modify only records owned by themselves.
The only problem is that when you restore the data coming from Collect Mobile (in general, from a .collect-data file) the records will be in Cleansing phase and a user with Entry or Entry Limited role won't be able to edit it in any case.
So we can add in Collect another role, "Cleansing Limited", that would be similar to the Entry Limited one but with the possibility to edit/clean records in Cleansing phase.
We will let you know when this feature will be available, thanks.
