    I am reading through ACL documents in openEMR wiki and kind of getting a bit confused:

    Is it correct that ACL will ONLY allow/deny access to an option but won't be able to hide the options in the left Navigator? For example, I've created a front office user and he shouldn't have access to "procedures" etc. However, I am still seeing the "procedures" option in the left Navigator.

    I've looked at a couple posts in this forum and it appeared that the ONLY way to hid options in the left navigator is by modifying the php files (Like left_nav.php)?

    thanks,

    J.H.

    Due to the lack of fine granular control, yes.

    Some of the menu options are hidden/displayed based on ACL settings. Entries which don't behave that way ought to be updated.
    https://github.com/openemr/openemr/blob/master/interface/main/left_nav.php#L155

    So if you do make changes in left_nav.php please submit them through git for review so they can be brought into the official code base.
