Sometimes, it can be useful to grant users, other than the submitter, access to certain submissions.


The Additional Submitters Grouping Field can be used to allow submitters of submissions with a common field value to see all the submissions with that common value.


E.g. Submitters needs to be able to see all submissions that have the same value for the CompanyName field as the CompanyName value for their own submission.


Use this Field Definition Attribute to control which users are granted the Submission Additional Submitter Role


All submitters for submissions that share the same value for the Field will have the Submission Additional Submitter Role applied for those submitters to those submissions.


NOTE: This settings is required when using Validated Content Sharing.


WARNING: It is recommended that this is only applied to a Field Definition that is Read Only for Submitters, otherwise submitters will be able to gain access to submissions by editing the field value.


Example

A Field Definition called CompanyName has the Additional Submitters Grouping Field  turned on.


Submitter A of Submission 0001 has a CompanyName of Firebird

Submitter B of Submission 0002 has a CompanyName of Firebird

Submitter C of Submission 0003 has a CompanyName of Microsoft


Submitter A is granted the Submission Additional Submitter role on Submission 0001 and Submission 0002 but not Submission 0003


Submitter B is granted the Submission Additional Submitter role on Submission 0001 and Submission 0002 but not Submission 0003


Submitter C is granted the Submission Additional Submitter on Submission 0003 but not Submission 0001 nor Submission 0002
