    Our client has 300 physical stores and wants 1 page on their web site per store.  On that page, they need a list of event specifically for that store.  There is a role for the store manager of that store:  Store1Manager; Store2Manager etc.  What we need is a way such that someone in role Store1Manager can  list, create, edit and delete events for Store 1 but cannot do either for Store 2.  Similarly for all other store managers.  As far as I can see, it's not possible for us to create an event list for a specific store, so we are thinking of using Categories to filter.

    One solution we are proposing is:
    - Create a Category for each store:  "Store1Category"
    - edit the admin side control that lists events and automatically set the filter to "Store1Category" if the user is in role "Store1Manager"
    - in the store page itself, add the Event View control and set the Advanced > Data to filter by that store's category.

    Do you think this is a good approach?  Would you recommend another, less hacky solution?

    Hello Daniel,

    This scenario is achievable but would involve coding effort for creating a custom module. The Events Module does not have such built-in functionality and for this purpose you would have to create a module with similar functionality to the one used in Blogs. There you can restrict the blogs appearing based on users permissions, so that one user can see only his/her blogs. The functional part for the new module would be the same so that Shop Managers would have permissions to see only their store events.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
