multi-user levels on wordpress site

I have a client who has a general website, and a back end for 2 groups - Group A sees some content, and Group B sees some content. They need to login and have a password to see the content that is either for Group A or B. As well, each user (several hundred) whether in Group A or B, need to have their own page for uploading mileage, receipts, and keeping track of their jobs. Not sure of best way to set this up? Is this a BuddyPress project? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lori

    Hey Lori,

    Hope you're doing well today and welcome to the WPMU DEV Community!

    Are you wanting to show certain content for group a vs group b on the frontend? I would use Protected Content for this :slight_smile: this will allow you to create 2 member groups and then protect/show content for each one.

    You could use BuddyPress for this and have private fields, although I think after awhile there would be a ton of fields. Might be easier to use a contact form plugin such as Contact 7 then have them submit them through the form to keep track of them that way :slight_smile:

    You can use the contact form 7 database extension to store all of the submissions too: https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7-to-database-extension/

    How does that sound? Let us know if you have any further questions here :slight_smile:

    All the best,
    Tyler
