Documents visible to user

All documents No restrictions on documents available to the user.
Only documents for which custom property Select a custom property from the list on the left and type in a value on the right; for example, select the Vendor property and type the name of the vendor corresponding to this user. In the documents checked into the vault, set the custom property (Vendor, for example) to a value corresponding to the filter. This restriction works for all types of files, to all projects, and is in addition to restrictions on project access. The restriction appears in the Filter column. The vault filters out files that the user is not allowed to see. If a file should not be seen but is the parent for files that can be seen, the file appears in gray.

You can set more than one value of a custom property in a document. Use a comma between values. For example, vendor A has access to documents with custom property Vendor set to A, vendor B has access to documents with custom property Vendor set to B, and both can access documents with custom property Vendor set to A,B.
