I was wondering if it's possible to create a section where user A can only edit the entries created by him, and user B can only edit those created by her. Ideally, user A cannot even see the entries of user B, and vice versa.

Is this doable with Symphony?

Thanks for any pointers.

When using the frontend and the members extension you can control this via event permissions. If you want to use backend users have a look at author roles. But it’s really old and I think it only works on section basis.

That answers my question, thanks a lot for your help.

You’re welcome.

If you don’t need proper security you could always use backend_assets and do some JS do hide the entries from the user. Of course easily circumvented.
