Hi guys!

I am trying to:

- Build a membership site.
- On this site a user can make an account and login to their 'personal dashboard'.
- This personal dashboard should show a view of company reports (CPT)
- A company report is assigned to the specific (logged in) user (and only to that user).
- The specific (logged in) user can approve or decline the report on the detail page.
- This approval or declination should be visible in the CPT reports.
- This approval or declination should show the report in another view.
- Ideally the post can be assigned to several users.

I searched and found out that assigning a post to a user is impossible since there is not a parent/child relationship possible. Now i'm a bit stuck.

What is the best way to achieve above?

Thanks a lot!

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Well - the best way I think to achieve this, the workaround is to create a child post for Reports.
- Report CPT (parent)
- ReportUsers( new CPT should be created as child of Report )
- assign child post author as user

However, I have the tutorial to offer you for the membership site that may help to rethink how you can build your membership site:

I have one case study as well:


Thanks for the clearance and the docs.
I understand the pattern.
Have a nice day!
