CKEditor Restricted

Allows you to define which parts of a document can be editable for a group of users who have more restricted editing rights


CKEditor Restricted provides a way to restrict editing rights within a document, enabling certain areas to be designated as editable while restricting other areas. This feature is useful for scenarios such as creating experiment protocols where certain variables need to be updated, creating invoice or email templates, and more. By controlling the editing permissions, users with restricted rights can still make necessary edits in designated regions while preserving the integrity of the rest of the document.

Use cases

  • Creating experiment protocols and only allowing certain variables to be updated.

  • Creating invoice templates that restrict editing to specific fields.

  • Creating email templates where the main message remains uneditable while allowing customization of certain sections.
