so we are hopefully soon upgrading our wf8008. For now, we have unsophisticated security in place. I am looking for a way to add a tab or a few buttons to an existing tab..but hide them from everyone except for me and a cube mate. These are for adhoc stuff we do...but do not want to clutter things up for other users. Any thoughts?

Hide a tab from a portal ?

If so, create a new security group where only you and co-worker will be members and change security rules for this tab to denied access to all groups except the new one.

if you want to hide/display buttons in a tab, then you have to use html controls.

hide/unhide based on the user:
i do similar in my project by greyout the buttons and controls in html based on the username and then use the html in the portal.

what MartinY said is a quick solution for you, if you are not comfy with the html route.
