You can restrict any user by provider, if desired.

*If one or more of your providers is requesting access to information surrounding the sale of their services through your company, you can easily give them access to ONLY this information (while restricting them from viewing information not associated with their services) by creating a new user account for them, assigning the applicable provider to this user account, and restricting the user account by provider. To complete these steps, see the instructions below. 

 

*For instructions on creating new users in FastGem, please see help article "Onboarding a New User in Admin (Backend)."

To add a provider to your instance, login to the Admin (back end) page of your FastGem, and click on 'Config.' 

 

Next, click on the 'Content Types' tab:
