Sprout Video

Views is great for making listings of all kinds of content for many different tasks and users. You don't always want everyone on your site to see everything you put in a view though. In this video we'll learn how to limit access to a particular view, using the built-in menu and access restriction settings. We create a new view to list all of the applications that have been received on the site and make sure that only site staff can access it.

This video series will continue the Job Board example from the Fields for Site Builders series where we will discover ways to display all of the job postings, allow people to find the one they are looking for and easily apply for it.
