Protecting mobile pages (Page Manager)

This article refers to our legacy product, Page Manager. For the best Finalsite experience, we recommend using our newest product, Composer. To find out how to upgrade your site, talk to your Client Success Manager or learn more on our website.

As you build out your mobile site, you can create mobile pages whose content is restricted. There are two ways to limit mobile content visibility: by implementing group/role restrictions, and by using passwords. Each serves a slightly different purpose. When group or role restrictions are added to a page, that page is completely invisible except to users in the specified groups or roles. A password protected page, on the other hand, is visible to all users but its content cannot be read except by those users who enter the correct password.

Group/Role Restrictions

Activate Group/Role restrictions by clicking the "advanced options" link when editing the mobile page in Page Manager.

Click the checkbox labeled "Password protect access to this page" to reveal the group and role authorization options.

Click the appropriate "View Selected" link to display all of the roles and groups configured in Constituent Manager. Use the checkboxes to select which groups and roles should have access to this page.

Save and publish the page.

Only those constituents who are members of the roles and/or groups that you selected will be able to see this page when browsing the mobile site. Even then, users will have to login to the mobile site to reveal this page; the site will not display restricted pages to users who aren't logged in, even if they're authorized to view the page.

If you want to inform non-logged-in users that they must login to see restricted content, create a non-restricted "placeholder" page, and then create a restricted content page as a sub-page of that one. On the placeholder page, add text prompting users to login. This way all mobile users will see the placeholder, and members of the authorized roles/groups will be reminded that they must login to see restricted content.

Password Protecting Mobile Pages

As with group/role restrictions, click the "advanced options" link and then select the "Password protect access to the page" checkbox.

Enter the password you wish to use into the "Page Password Key" field.

Save and publish the page.

The page will still be visible to all mobile users regardless of whether or not they login to the mobile site. When users tap on the button to access this page, they will be prompted to enter a password. Once they've entered the password you chose, they will then be able to view the page's content.
