The problem that is occuring here is that the user does not have access to a folder that is actually hidden from menu navigation, but the access is required to access the Content References (CREFS) that are within that folder.

When a user logs on they get this error message on the left hand navigation side. "Menu Navigation error User does not have access to folder PT_TOOLS_HIDDEN. (95,136)" How is this issue resolved?
