I'm using CiviCRM 4.5.8 and WordPress. I want people to only access the data for their state. I was going to use ACL to do that. I set up a smart group for Wisconsin, but there's no check box for Access Control. I can only check Mailing List. What's up with that? Thanks in advance!

According to a 2007 forum post by Donald Lobo (a CiviCRM founder): For efficiency purposes the acl role needs to be assigned to a static group.

Perhaps the CiviRules Extension will allow you to add your users to a static group(?)
