we have ACT 2013 premium with web access.. and we would like to give external access for data entry people.
but we want to disable these users from being able to view items like the calendar, groups, toolbar items like reports etc
can this be done? as we cant seem to be able to find any way of limiting views..all there really is, is limiting access to fields
can we create a custom web view that only shows contacst and nothing else for data entry?

thanks but thats not what im looking for.. XData requires everything to be built for it, so it not OOTB..
im looking for a complete addin that is already built to just select users and enable/disable views in the web interface.. install..preferences.. done

There isn't anything OOTB and don't expect one anytime soon. The APFW UI was built from 3rd part components with a lot of ActiveX dependency. You can be assured the only practical way is using an API and creating appropriate HTML forms.

seems there is a little way around it.. will take a little time to get all the html ID's of the objects.. but good old CSS does the trick
can now hide and remove the items on the webpage from use

Do you want a professional product that can be supported or a hack?
If you hack the UI, it will take a lot of work and prone to instability, very layout specific and likely to break between APFW version releases or service packs, particularly with likely Swiftpage fine tuning for Chrome compatibility . Much quicker and professional to run with the API.
