    How to Remove the Form Dashboard Section for editors in Umbraco v8


    With the Dashboard changed in version 8, How do I remove the Form section for my Editors using C#. I know how to remove a section and a dashboard, but I don't know how to remove the forms dashboard/section for just the editors.

    None of my code seems to be working.

    cheers, Daniel

    Hi Daniel

    If you want to remove the entire Forms section AND dashboard for editors, then in the Users section you can 'un-tick' the Forms section checkbox for the editors group.

    But if you are looking to allow editors access to the Forms section, but don't want them to see a dashboard, then it's a bit weird in V8, but you can do so by first 'removing' the dashboard, from Umbraco's collection of dashboards, and then add it back again with different IAccessRules controlling who should see it...

    ... there is an example in the docs for the RedirectUrlManagementDashboard:

    (think the forms one is just called FormsDashboard)

    Thanks Mark!

    That was helpful. In the end I removed the forms from the Editors group.

    I spent a long time trying to work with the Umbraco API from trying to do this. Is there another source for learning/understanding the backend in umbraco?

    Many thanks, Daniel
